Hello everyone...having recently "returned to the fold" after 30+ years, I find my options are seemingly endless now...aftermarket detailing options are everywhere, and therein lie the questions I'm posing here...When I was first into this hobby, it was pretty much the Testors Red or Blue tubes, or the small square bottle with the tiny brush on the lid...generally, you were only glueing styrene together...today, the choices are endless, and I'd rather not experiment with the parts for my current WIP...so, here goes: What glues/adhesives are you using for: 1) Basic styrene assembly
I recently bought a couple of super nice resin-cast transmissions from B-N-L Resins ( A-727 TorqueFlite , and two TH 400's ) , and I now have a question or two regarding their assembly : 1.) Best adhesive ? 2.) Surface Prep ? Should I roughen the mating surfaces ; give the surfaces a 'tooth' ? I realise that conventional cold weld (e.g. , model cement) can't be utilised as an adhesive on resin ; is cyanoacrylate best ? 5 Minute Epoxy ? RTV Silicone ? Thanks for your help !
