Tricky glue

(1/1)

radio joe:
Cyano glues can be tricky especially on the first few joints of small styrene Assembly's, this may be of some help to members new to the hobby, get a piece of polythene, not many glues stick to this type of plastic and cyano (superglue) certainly doesn't, now place the polythene on work surface, place the base of the assembly on top and weight it down, dry assemble first side of structure and apply thin cyano, it will run though the joint and bond instantly, lift off of polythene, careful the under side will be wet but will dry very quick, assemble the rest of the sides the same way, any glue on the under side can be sanded off when structure is finished. ^^^

Tanzy:
Great tip for us newbie's, thank you ^^^
