    Question on Green Stuff

    How should I be using GS to fill gaps in my models?

    Should I superglue the limbs together, then stuff the GS in the crack, or should I stick a blob on the GS on, then put some superglue, and stick the pieces together, or am I just plain doing it wrong?

    Thanks.

    I tend to do the second option or a mix of the 2 depending on how good a fit the join is. If its just a crack in a metal mmodel then most of the time it's post glue, otherwise if there's only a small point of contact then I use GS to create a larger surface area for the peices to stick too. I always glue and GS at the same time in this case.

    *Shakes head disgustedly*

    Do I smell a bangwagon? A very ratty smelling banwagon?

    To be honest there's no real right or wrong way to use it, just the way that works best for you. The best advice I can probably give you is to play around and see what works.

    i've found that green stuff accelterates the CA glue to dry/stick almost instantly but then it pops off easily

    thus i usually never glue green stuff to things, personally

    I usually glue what I can and then add the greenstuff later. Use tiny amounts and smooth it over joins with a wet finger. If you use your finger to brush perpendicular to the line of the join then you'll end up removing surplus GS at the same time. Does that make sense?
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
