Re: What glue bonds well and is more forgiving than super glue?
I have used a lot of adhesives, but on my recent Orange Hobby CV-41(resin and photoetch)I tried Gorilla CA glue in the bottle with the blue cap. It is just a bit thick so it stays where you put it, has a delayed but not too delayed drying time, holds very well, and best of all the blue cap has a metal spike inside which fully fills the hole so it never dries out or plugs. I am on my third bottle and the first two were good until at least the last 5%. This IS NOT the standard Gorilla Glue (a carpenters glue but a very superior cyanoacrylate. They also make a green cap CA, but I have not tried it yet. I have no stock in Gorilla, but do yourself a favor and try this stuff! Thanks, John
Still trying to improve my skills.
Building Revell 1/700 USS Wasp. I am freaking out about using super glue to bond the 2 parts hull to the waterline plate.
By the time I apply the super glue to the end of the plate, the beginning will have dried off.
Or one small mistake and the kit will be ruined.
I tried using Elmer white glue to temporarily glue one part of the hull and when in place I would have super glued the inside of the hull to the plate but Elmer does not hold the bond. I washed the white glue off and am back to square one.
So looking for other options that bond well and give me more time to work with large parts.
