glue

Discuss authentic Paint colors, Stains, and Schemes for different ships and Periods. What color did they really use? Did you mix your own? Discuss brands such as Model Masters, Testors, and others.

Afternoon Gentlemen

Just got back from the store. Has anyone had the occasion to use super glue by Gorilla that is listed as a gel? Sounds like just the ticket for some tricky situations. Notice I held back from saying sticky situations.

Hi John,

We don't have the Gorilla brand here but keep in mind that unless you use activator, gel type superglue takes ages to cure. It is suitable for parts that needs to be strong but take some time to fit together. After you're satisfied with the fit, activator applied for superfast cure. Useful in some situations although I hardly use them.

Thanks for your response. I too am not a big fan of super glue but open to try things. I ended up going back yesterday and getting a bottle so we will see how it goes. I'm sure it will come in handy at some point.

I use different wood glues and your right they are to wet and will warp thin pieces. What I do is pour some in a small bottle and let it dry out until it thickens up. This takes a lot of the moisture out of the glue.

I have used the gorilla wood glue with really good success it really dries fast like 10 mins it sticks good then a couple hours to fully cure. it isnt a super glue but it is really good.

a second one i use is Elmers wood glue max it is both sandable and stainable
