Why pin when you can screw?

Doing some slow construction work on my Warlord. With the amount of weight and pressure that's going to rest on the lower joints I wanted to use a different method to secure the joints. Pins just didn't seem enough. So I used a screw.

I drilled a guide hole and used a routing bit to counter sink the screw. Once the screw was in place I used some JB Wield to fill.

I had to admit that was the most nerve wracking method I've ever used but the screw will provide a more secure join.

Got my inspiration from www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk
