Good adhesive for laminating foam?

17 December 2014 - 07:31 PM

I have a few of the old foam mats. I'd like to cut one or two up and make a pad 3 or 4 layers thick for when I have to work on something down low. Anyone know of a good adhesive for this idea?


I did consider just buying some other pad that's thicker, but it seems everything else is too expensive and heavy or too delicate. (would sometimes be used outside)


Thanks. Lee

Can a carb be used as a throttle body for EFI?

I'm imagining an old Jaguar inline-6 in a street rod without a hood. Get the classic look of side draft Webers but have a fuel rail and injectors under the manifold(s).

Tamiya Jaguar Mk II Saloon engine or whole kit.

Looking for the complete inline-6 engine and trans from Tamiya.

Will buy whole kit if it's at a good price.

Thanks, Lee

Woohoo! I'm now a Journeyman plumber.

I checked the mail when I got back from an out of town trip today. I passed the test I took last week, and now I'm a Journeyman. I live in Texas, and we have really strict plumbing regulations. I was a Tradesman, which meant I could not work on commercial or multi-family jobs without supervision. It also meant that I could not work with propane gas without supervision. My new license will let me be a more valuable employee..and get me a pay raise. I'm a happy guy.


I got home kinda late for celebrating. I didn't go out with friends. I just got a couple of weird beers from the grocery store and I'm cranking some early Led Zeppelin.

What primer for Tamiya acrylics?

31 October 2014 - 05:04 AM

I'm getting ready to airbrush a plane with Tamiya acrylics. I have never used these. I tried brush painting the cockpit and it did not have good adhesion. Would their spray can grey or white primer be a good choice?

FYI- the plane is Gerhard Barkhorn's Bf-109E-1. I got a book about him, with paintings and photos of all 15 of the aircraft he flew during the war. The same company offers a decal sheet with markings for all 15 aircraft.
