One of the towers on my Alliance ship is really bent. I did not get a GenCon issue, so mine is plastic. Has anyone tried using the boiling water method on theirs yet?

There's another thread here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1057163/alliance-ship-doesnt...

Doesn't look like anyone has tried it yet though.

Wouldn't that melt the glue?

I wouldn't have thought it would.

Only one way to find out. Who's feeling adventurous?

Adventurous! ME!!! Agreed, mine also - plus lots of blobby excess glue....

Solution - Immersion in boiling water (in a mug from the kettle) for ten minutes and then left to recool naturally. The spires are straightened and the blobby glue has melted away....huzzah!

Now to paint.

Cheers, Hal
