I GS'ed a few models together yesterday (though quite poorly, considering my GS skills), and some of their joints simply came apart while I was transporting them. I assure you that I had left them in their positions for 24 hours; they looked fine before I picked them up. Any ideas what could be causing this? It's not all the joints that are doing this, mind you, only some of them.
GS isn't a glue, it's a putty. You'll still need to superglue the components together and then GS the gaps.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Well, I put a blob of GS in the gap, then a drop of superglue, then squished it all together and molded it from there.
Could it because I'm not mixing it well enough? How long would you usually mix it?
glue, set, THEN GS the gaps, the gs may be interfering with the glu to metal to glue bonding process.
Alright, I've done that. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens.
Thanks, TPM and ARS, for your help.
If you absolutely want to be sure the parts stick, pin them, glue them and after it's set, then fill the seams with GS.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
i think i said in the other thread that glue and green stuff stick really fast but then they come off really easy
Yes - Pinning is the best way to realy support a joint.
If your looking for green stuff to stick well make sure dust / moisture (water) / or oils from your hand or model arn't preventing it from sticking to the contact zone,
Also you can try mixing more yellow to get better tackyness.
Also make sure the green stuff hasnt gone all skinny.
Hope that helps.
Nothing is fool proof, to a sufficiently motivated fool...
Nothing is idiot proof, idiots are too ingenious...
Ya when mixing green stuff make sure you mix it well, it will change colour to a darker green colour, and then you will know you did a good job of mixing it. Also when using it to hold joints together, place a small amount of glue in the joint first, then place some green stuff in the joint, then place a little more glue on the green stuff, then put the pieces together. The way you did it what might of happened is only one side got glue stuck to it, and the there was no glue on the other side of the green stuff, so it wasn't able to hold.
