Well I usually use super glue on all my plastic models but I bought some plastic glue today because I bought some more necron forces.. I can't seem to work with this stuff.. I wait a minute and try to glue the next piece, the other piece starts to drip? it's melting the plastic I guess but it's taking forever and before I destroy all the models I need to find out how to use this stuff..
any tips or secrets?
I really don't want to buy any more supplies to glew these guys together and I seem to be out of super glue =\
Well, I won't be much help. I loath the container GW glue comes in. I get my glue with either a thin metal tube (usually clogs eventually) or a brush. Much more control over the application.
Beware the Agapanthers!
Codex Astartes: More a guideline than a rule...
just dont apply too much, and hold the piece in place for about 10 seconds
A Promise to a dead man means nothing.
u know little tiny amount works.
not too much just think of it as little tiny droplet.
THIS IS ONE OF THE CASES WHERE A LITTLE WORKS BETTER THEN ALOT :w00t:
You only need a tiny droplet. If you put to much then it wont be able to make a firm connection and will keep dripping, slipping, and scewing you over~!:sleep:
Try 'Revell' contacta professional. It comes in a funny shaped blue plastic bottle with a thin metal tube sticking out of the top. You can place a droop of glue with great control and no mess or waste. After use just 'flick' the tube with you finger to clear it. If it does get bungerd up I use a strand of picture wire to unblockit . Works a treat.
You can get it from any model shop other than GW.
Hope this helps
I used Testors quick dry that comes in the orange container. I love that stuff. That's what I've used on all of my plastic models and I haven't had any trouble yet. Incredibly cheap too. Got mine at wal-mart for 79 cents.
You really don't need to use much glue. Also, try to prop up the piece you're sticking. It'll support it and make sure it doesn't slide out of place.
I do apologise. My previous signature was positively turd. Let's hope this'll be better.
Aw, crap. I failed.
I really started having success in my glueing when a chemistry professor explained to me how glue is supposed to work.
Bottom Line: There should be such a small amount of glue that the two surfaces being glued can touch each other with only a THIN film of glue between them.
So a tiny drop squeezed in-between the parts will have much success.
My blast template of S10 AP2 will toast all terminators.
Ah man, GW glue is the definition of failure. Use locktites' "quicktight" superglue. It bonds just about everything, and you only have to hold the pieces together for 5 seconds, tops.
