Default removing superglue/green stuff

Greetings one and all....

I have a dilema... I was making another golden deamon piece, (gulavir, but painted blue, surrounded by polystyrene icicles.... gonna look WICKED!) Anyhoo, I'm having* major problems trying to get the wings on it, and without having apin vice, i just used superglue.. which worked, but thy collapsed under the slightest pressure.

Well, the problem i have is this... how can i take off the superglue, without ruining the model... (it's metal)

How do you people do it?

Please bear in mind, I'm in the UK, so don't talk about US exclusive products too much...I'll get depressed

Arghhhhh, my eyes
*runs around blind*

If the wings have just fallen off, file the join very lightly until it gets back to bare metal, or use a sharp knife/scalpel and run it between the metal and the glue.

If they haven't fallen off, just break 'em off like you said before, and do the above.
for future reference, big chunks of metal must be pinned if you want them to stay together. Bigger pieces need even bigger pins, and at least two of them. Invest in a pin-vice, you won't regret it when it comes to big conversions.

Hope that helped in some way.
And please, please, please change that blinding yellow text.
*wanders off into the sunset of blinding yellow text*
