Hey everyone, yet another one looking for help from the experts of kitbashing.
I got e-Hobby Clear Blue Hot Rod in the mail yesterday and after fiddling with him a bit I discovered a blemish: a plastic part has warped out of shape. The worst part is that it's clear plastic
(yes, the sturdier kind) and the location is a doozy as well:
I'm using BiS Rodimus for your reference since on him the pieces are a different color, but anyway, the warp is on the piece that forms the roof and windshield (red on BiS, clear on all other versions), to be exact it's the ridged area that ends up behind the head. The warp makes the piece bend to the outside, that's my only stroke of good luck I guess.
I don't have any tools to disassemble him aside from a screwdriver, even then I'm extremely hesitant to use it since clear plastic is prone to scratch marks. I know I can bend plastic back into shape with heat (still remember that from shop class in junior high), but all I got is a blow drier.
Any tips will be extremely helpful. I really love this figure and I'd hate myself if I ruined it with my handywork.
