One Stop Glue Resource Page (Link)

Recommended Posts

This link is probably one of the more comprehensive single page resources I've found for the casual glue user. It doesn't provide technical data, but covers glue types and where/how to use them for whichever kinds of plastic and model material you want to glue. Though these glues have all been covered here before, this is a one (web) page resource.

Nice, There should be one for plastic polish too.  Bare Metal Foil makes the best and most inexpensive that I know of.  I have tried several brands.  This works great for rubbing out paint too.

I've had trouble finding that in stock.

That list looks good at a glance, should take the time to read.   Did not see Water Effects, which is for diorama water, but works really well for some applications.

You can purchase the plastic polish on Ebay or from the BMF site itself.

If you are wanting to do resin casting, they have a good price for a one pound pack of KLEAN KLAY.  I have seen this stuff listed for much higher prices.

Interesting, thanks. The article mentions E6000 (canopy glue, they call it, for clear parts, ie: windshields). I usually go to a water soluble white glue that dries clear for this application (also I use it for gauge faces to simulate a clear lens) the advantage to this glue is that if you screw up and don't get the windshield placed correctly, you can remove it, wash the glue off and try again with no ill effects on the clear part.

Has anyone used this E6000? Thoughts?  -RRR
