Use Hot Water/Hair Dryer

The white plugs on the end of the neck piece and tail piece can be heated and this will help them to slot into the main body of the Diplodocus. A hairdryer can be used to gently warm up the plastic plug. Heating the plastic makes it more malleable. It should be easier to slot the neck and tail pieces into position.

Alternatively, the plug can be dipped into a cup of boiling water. Quickly dry the plug and then insert it into the body. Please take care when using hot water.

Assembling the Rebor Diplodocus Models

The plug pieces can be difficult to insert. Please take care when inserting the pieces as you might damage the delicate raised scutes that run along the back of the model.

Try not to force the pieces into place. If the hot water treatment or the hairdryer has not helped, try adding a little oil. Adding a drop of vegetable oil to the white plugs will lubricate them and help them slide into place. Only a little oil is needed, excess squeezed out of the joint can be wiped away.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Sometimes the Rebor models can be tricky to assemble. Try the heating method first, if this does not work, then add a smear of oil to the plugs. Using vegetable oil, olive oil or something similar should do the trick. These are the types of oil used in cooking. You can find them in most kitchens.”
