Re: You will also like disposable micro brushes
I bought mine in bulk from Amazon; I think they were intended for fingernail painting. They don't hold up to solvent glue but they're fantastic with white glue and cyano. Super cheap in bulk amounts.
Not a paint brush as we know them but a very tiny foam/fiber tipped plastic handle Q-tip. I initially purchased some at a local hobby store, than Micro-Mark and later the evil site. Tips are cylindrical about 2 millimeters long and flat topped. I use them for fine painting of delicate pieces, applying glues and gap filling. They are disposable. Love them for they can get into areas where a normal brush can’t
Never liked photo-etch. More and more kits are being produced with everything photo-etched. Because of this I invested in a “Hold and Fold” and tried white glue a long while back for closing photo-etch gaps and for tacking onto the model. As for closing gaps and seams even between non photo-etch parts it works like a charm. A couple of applications with a micro brush and seams are gone. No more putty. One less expense. With the help of a micro-brush also tacks photo-etch to resin and mold injected with ease.
Not so fearful of photo-etch and seams anymore.
