Well I really dunno whether this belongs in this forum but never mind. I can't seem to glue the metal parts and the plastic parts of a blister pack together! Can someone please help me/ give me tips/ share experience.... I really do need my Chaplain model. Thanx in advance.
What type of glue are you using? Plastic glue will not work you need to use suerglue. Also be sure that you are not putting too much glue on the parts, a thin coating will work much better than a huge blob.Originally posted by chickenpowder@Dec 25 2004, 12:50

You can buy glues called 2-part epoxys at hardware stores or general home stores, walmart etc. You mix the two mixtures together and it works wonderfully on metal minis or plastic ones with metal pieces etc. A little super glue, just a drop or two added will lengthen the amount of time before they fully harden. Most set up and harden in 5+ minutes. I like to mix mine, add a drop of super glue, wait almost the full 5 or so minutes and then bond my pieces together. An easy solution to gluing hard pieces. Another quick solution is using a small piece of green stuff in a joint and then super glue, when mixed they make a rather strong epoxy bond as well if you already have green stuff lying around.
Do not meddle in the affairs of Tyranids, for you are crunchy and taste good with everything!
I would not recomend using to part epoxy glue...
It's a nightmare to get it to stick (No offence anyone... It's just kinda out of experience at work)
Usually some pinning and a few drops of locktite 501 should to the trick.
Sure the two part stuff relly gives a good bond, but the actual mixing process and the waiting bit is just a pain in the ass for modeleres without much patience.
if you have a drill then pin the model togethor and use superglue my prefered superglue is loctite gel it comes in a nice little dispencer and dries really quick

Perhaps it dries to fast sometimes...
I've had lots of stuck fingers... :rofl:
If you really want the model to keep together no matter what (or at least close to that :hmm: ), you should really pin the model.
It's almost natural to use pinning when you have joints holding a lot of weight, but some people I know always pin everything. And to say the truth I have never seen then having a fallen apart miniature...
I suggest superglue, but make sure the parts fit together well (the joining surfaces are flat against each other). Epoxy is really only used on large non plastic-models.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
citideal super glue works the best, just use a little bit of it! u must be using the wrong kind of glue if you can't get it glued....
Damn straight homies! Of course tau kill SOB then they go on a pantie raid

I use Zap-a-gap, none of my models have fallen apart. Ive never had a problem with this stuff holding plastic to metal...
I use contact cement that I get from the local Dollarama. It's fast and cheap. It's not the best for metal, usually takes a try or two, but it will work.
