Half bow ties 5 Years ago  
I started to paste the half bow ties on my precious dunjeon sets to definitively see them disappear.
A simple job but long to do.
I just ordered 5 more packs since the 3 first ones are gone fastly.
I would like to know who used it here ?
Am I alone ?
I think a pack of 500 should be better than 100 if you have a lot of "old"sets.

I have them and plan to do it, but haven't yet....

What kind of glue did you use? How well did it work? Could you post a picture?

Thanks!

You don't need bow tie, most epoxy putty will do.

Epoxy ?
I can't cast a such spell : I haven't the level !

I use a basic transparent glue (polyprene)
The half bow ties are hard to fix since the holes are too huge or too thin so the result isn't perfect.
But if you watch the pieces one step away it looks ok.

Here is a pic of all I did on last saturday :



My other sets are already finished.
Close to 900 half bow ties to paste !!

The result is ... kif kif like we say in french it means it's not very good. (50% 50%)
The hardest part is when you need to rip some borders with a knife because bow-ties & bow-tie holes aren't perfect.

I should paint them all with the same color but it's too complicated to get the same color and it takes definitively too much time.

Well after 6 hours to work on the half bow ties of all my DF pieces I have finally finished this task.
So Here what I've done working hard in 6 hours :

1 room set
1 deluxe room
1 room & passage set
1 octagonal room set
1 narrow passage set
1 advanced builder set
1 trap set 1
1 trap set 2
1 fantasy floor set
1 fantasy starter set
1 wicked 1 set
1 wicked 2 set
1 15 short passage set
4 croisements T
4 passages X
1 cavern set
1 cavernous passage set

What I had to do :

1 To buy 9 half bow ties packs it means 900 half bow ties
2 To place it and paste it with a transparent glue (a superglue isn't good at all & expensive) ad let all the DF pieces dry one month.
3 To Buy a Drennel.
4 To put my protection glasses. (cinema 3D are good too :lol: )
5 Patience & précision in 6 hours.

Final count : I spent close to 20 hours between pasting and ripping.

Here is the lethal weapon against the half bow ties edges :


A example of what it gives once the half bow ties are fixed :


You see those spaces are horrible, the edges imperfect and the DF pieces cannot be placed correctly : unplayable a shame !!
So after my work here what you can have :


Well you know now that half bow ties represent a hard work too.

Still I tested with gray epoxy putty, and even without paint, the result is almost impossible to distinguish between old and new. I even scored the line so the finishing touch is perfect.

With the half-bowties glued in, it would take even less epoxy putty to fill in the cracks and make them disapear completely

Salut Christian,

Could you post some pics of the result you achieved with your technique. I'll begin that quest shortly and i need to decide which technique to use.

Thanks

I salute your patience - I must admit I'm not bothering with mine as I have far too much DF and it is definitely "all or nothing" for me.

After posting this i found the nice tutorial that Stefan made about stuffing those bowties holes with putty. I came to realise that maybe ... it was an endeavour that i will not embark on :) I still need to think about it hehe

I confess, I just use the good old regular bow ties, I'm old school....I utilize the half bow ties when new sets sit next to old sets, and I just place them in, no glue...
