Can anyone help me with a leaning problem? As you can see, I am not yet experienced making garage kits and this one is full of mistakes but I'm still proud of her! One issue though is that she is standing on one foot and she leans a lot. How can this be fixed?

Nice job ! I like the shades in her hair.
If you have a leaning problem, you need to make some "pinning" on her leg she stands on. You have to get a brass stick (or equivalent) of 1 or 1,5 mm diameter, you cut approximately 1,5-2 cm of it (the length will mostly depend of the size you have in her leg to pierce). Then you pierce a perpendicular hole, both in its foot (probably in the middle on the heel) and in the base, at the precise place where it matches with the hole you did in the heel. You pierce both far enough to put the brass stick, to get a solid link between the base and the figure. You add glue on the stick before placing it and her leaning problem should be solved.
I hope it will help you !

Thank you so much for your reply! ^__^ I just purchased the brass sticks. How do you cut them? With a knife or a saw or maybe a rotary drill?
