Re: A great glue for resin kits

Hi , My method is Walthers Goo for initial bond with an application of ACC after . The joint is stronger than the resin , learned the hard way after a mistake . I use the micro tips on the Goo to control it , works well in O scale joints , no experience in smaller scales . Bob Jonestoggle quoted message Show quoted text

When I build resin carbodies, especially closed cars, I only use CA
to "tack" parts together and then use generous applications of good
old Epoxy to ensure permanent bonds. I have a Sunshine gondola on
which I used only CA throughout, and it's always been somewhat "brittle"
with weak side-to-floor bonds. Try gluing something like Gary said -
a broken delrin handrail - and then give it a good twist and flex. If
the bond holds, then this Loctite stuff may actually be different.
In the meantime, my little 2-yr old bottle of Zap is still working.
