This picture will give you an idea of what CA does to the strips. Look at this link http://www.shipsofscale.com/sosforums/v ... 8&start=70 ,5 photos down, the dark strip about one third up from the keel was glued down with CA glue, hope this helps you decide which glue to use.

Regards
Eric

Hi Eric,I used CA only on my Santa Maria and on my AVS planking, how did the Ca soaked through the plank? I have never experienced that.

Hi Zoltan, the Sapelle strips that came with the Endeavour kit were quite porous and the CA glue being rather thin created quite a problem. The glue set very quickly and my fingers stuck to the strips then while trying to get my fingers off the strips, the strips broke. I won't go on, it's a comedy of errors.
If I had a denser strip of wood I don't think I would have had that problem. The strips even curved down the length when PVA glue was spread on them.

Regards
Eric

Gosh Denis, I bought 2 packets of those for a quarter the price. You should have asked me first.
