I need to know what plastic is used for the hull (dark blue) of the 60266: Ocean Exploration Ship, in order to glue a reinforcement on.
I bought this for my boys (younger than the advertised 7+). It is a really fantastic playable model. Expensive per-part, put the floating ship and crane (on a gantry! :) ) is great. However, the hull is two sections (one bow, one stern) - and this is a problem.
Inexplicably, Lego did not devise a way to robustly connect the two halfs. they are connected only by studs at the top. So even with care, the studs work their way loose - and to borrow from SpaceX - RUD !
I would like to find a way to glue on a re-enforcement on the lower levels of the hull, preferably from Technic. However the plastic has a different feel, and seems a different stiffness - so I'm not sure if it's the standard ABS as the rest of the parts??
