Gene....

For any resin kit, I use CA adhesive with a kicker to cure it.

Dear Sid,

Thanks for the response.  I'll remember that one.  I use lots of CA with Zip Kicker for model airplanes, etc.  Works well.  We do not build museum pieces, so only use the medium weight or so.  I remember one time TOC mentioned that CA can be softened and removed by soaking in water.

Have you ever tried Gorilla Glue for models?  I use it a lot to repair outside broken bird baths, etc, but the stuff expands greatly when water is applied.  "Strong stuff," as Elwood Blues said !

Best Wishes,

Jack

I find that No-Nails covers just about any gluing job I need to cover.

Dear Grumpy,

Is all this stuff "instant grab" or do you have some working time?  I would hate to connect the "neck bone to the leg bone," and not have the time to correct it.  Smiley

Too, can you get it at Lowe's or similar?

Best Wishes,

Jack

The No -Nails  has good holding power until it dries. You have 30 min working time . I use little dobs to hold small things in place. My back ground panels are all held it into place with No-Nails.
