The "Walk then Run" thread got me thinking.
Recently having gotten back into the hobby, I found myself back into the good- and bad- habits I had years ago. My Mini Cooper turned out great, in my opinion, except for the paint, which was always a weak point for me. However having done some research, I figured out where I was going wrong, and my current model the paint looks 100x better.
Even though I am fairly confident in my model building skills (especially now that I think I've figured out paint), there's still a few questions I have.
First off, I need a good glue recommendation. When I was younger I used the "Testors red tube of strings", which got the job done but it was messy and unpredictable, and now I've been using Testors liquid cement (which takes a long time to set) along with Krazy Glue (which sets quickly but isn't always the best option). I just have the feeling there has to be a better glue out there.
Secondly, putty. I have no idea what kind of body putty to use for basic body panel repair and filling in those nasty injector pin marks. Testors grey tube sucks. Plain and simple. At least it was only $2.
Thirdly, thinning white glue for flocking/interior work, what ratio do you use?
I'm sure there's more tips and tricks for beginners here, let's hear them.
