Repairing Drogon

A very interesting commission! Repair the wing tip of an absolutely enormous model of Drogon the Dragon from Game of Thrones.

The poor beast had arrived from China with damage to his right wing. Too expensive to ship it back so the owner had asked me if I could repair it for him.

First I drilled a small hole in both the talon and the wing tip and super glued a pin in to it. This pin was actually the “spikey bit” of a thumb tack. This was to give a bit more strength to hole assembly.

I then used some Green Stuff modeling clay to fill in the gap left between the talon and the wingtip and and shaped it to match the existing contours

Finally I painted the area to blend in with the wing. As good as new!
