Quoted from Bestshore:
My daughter and I got our Anubis and got a little carried away with the painting. When I was putting on the last color, I dropped it and broke the ear. Argh!!!! I looked on the floor for the piece, but never found it.
I carved a piece of ptex from the ski tuning bench, and glued on a new ear. Since it was painted black, it looked ok.
When I installed it, I bumped it and broke the ear off again. Loser!!
I’ll fix it again when I regain some self respect and confidence.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
It looks good. To make the ears pointy like a real Anubis, the tradeoff was even if I thickened the back a bit, they still are breakage points because they are narrow and come to a point that stands above the head, so dropping it on a hard surface almost always breaks one. Fortunately, once it's installed, that's not a concern anymore.
Yours is only the second one I know of that was dropped and the ear broke, which is a pretty good record given that I've shipped a lot of these. I'll PM you and see if I can help you out...
