Don't think I've used red tube glue, but I haven't used and tube glue since I was 16 (1962). I use Model Master Liquid Cement which glues as well as tube glues and is much easier to use. It also has a long life, better than tube glue, IMO. (the link is just you see the product I'm talking about)
First, welcome to the forum, Louis! With your like of different scales just remember Model Cars Magazine ... try it, you'll lie it! And Pat ...my great ... grandfather came to Canada in the same year ... maybe they were shipmates! He was in the military and was from northern France as far as my Dad determined. My father spent a lot of time researching his family, but it all went blank finding the French Connection.
