My LD body #1 (Annabelle, Cynthia, and June, made in 2010) has the same neck problem, by the look and feel of it.

I noticed that she had a loose neck recently. Then, hanging her up the other day; snap!

I doubt that I can manage a repair strong enough to hang her up again, but I should be able to at least get something in there to stop her neck wobbling as a sit-down doll.

All the same, it is a shame because I had a bunch of ideas for photos of June posed using the doll stand.

Wow thats terrible, very sorry to here this.
The resin repair is holding up well on the 1H so far (touches wood and holds a four leaf clover)
Hope you can make a successful repair.

Damn sorry to hear about this Everhard. I hope what ever repair you decide to do works out for the intent. Good luck!

I will do the best I can when I have enough time and energy. This kind of thing is not a task to be hurried.

Unfortunately, I can no longer log in to YouTube. (Their automated process is not convinced that I own my e-mail account.)

I wonder if embedding the video here would work?

"Adobe Flash Player is missing."
I uninstalled Flash to prevent my browser from crashing all the time.

Anyway, I repaired the break -- after a fashion. The doll can no longer hang up by the neck bolt and she still has a somewhat wobbly head, but this doll is ready for action again.

I will devise a method of hanging her up for storage using a rope or webbing sling. Can't be difficult.

The resin repair is not difficult Ev, it just takes a lot of time to do .

An LD is worth repairing, be a shame not to have a go at a more permanent solution, all the tutorials are in this thread.
How could you possibly go wrong ..... ;D

Hey a question for the other doctors in the room. Just this past sunday I noticed something with V's neck bolt that had me a tiny bit concerned. Her neck isn't loose or wobbling from what I can tell /feel, but the actual bolt itself feels just a little wiggley. Can anyone confirm what material that bolt actually screws into? From the video's and pic it looks like it screws into metal which would ease my fear. But I want to be sure. Can any others confirm the feel of an H1 neck bolt?

It's one of those things where I'm like " was that always like that or is something wrong?" Ya know I'm now realizing V actually has hips despite her wide shoulders @_@   so ..." was that always like that or is something wrong?"

On my Sin,LD and 4Woods(which I modded) it screws into the aluminium neck post.
This can wear to make it a looser fit over the years of screwing in and out if thats what you do.
Hopefully its nothing else and of course you could always contact Sinthetics for advice... :)

Real HUGE thank's for sharing your knowledge !
Just got a Syn' for 5 months work poses and on a simple fall expoded knee and femur bone on each leg. My surprise was to discover skeleton was relaying on... plastic tubes !
Seriously : synthetics guys should get a brain and learn some more physics from Newton ; their sculpt is really interesting but all the skeleton work looks like it was never thought on a planet with gravity ! It's really sad when you compare to general design of their dolls.

My Celeste is actually lying as a non usable posable thing and I don't have skill to fix her. Seriously annoying when compared to shots I could create (sorry : can't post images due to forum's limits but if you know this nickname, should be aware of my works).

Anyway : thank's a lot for clues on how to fix this shit engeenired object ;).
