Hello All,

I was just wondering what type of poly-cement you use for general model construction and would you recommend it. I know Bobby recommends Tamiya extra thin but this seems quite difficult to obtain in the UK.

I'm using Revell Contacta liquid at the mo which is ok but is there better types easily obtainable?

Cheers,

Geoff.

Best, and fastest way to get the Tamiya extra thin is to order direct on Tamiya.

Didn't know that John had Mr Cement S at ModelsRgo, must give them a call.

Thanks

i have been using E.M.A's plastic weld, its very thin and very hot, As it is only Dichloromethane ( Methylene Chloride ) you can buy gallons of it online very cheaply

You just made me think, I've got a huge barrel of sulphuric acid in the cellar, I use it for err "waste disposal" I wonder if I could bond kits together with it ! Of course it could be another of my great ideas like parachutes on a submarine or ashtray on a motorbike , trapdoor in a canoe etc etc etc zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz lol I'll get me coat

Ime pretty sure they use sulphuric acid as a flesh weld or is it flesh stripper, you can borrow my underwater hairdryer pete, or my anti antelope powder,we have not had any in our garden since i sprinkled some around the hedges

It's E.M.A's plastic weld for me to guys.
I use gallons of the stuff, as I scratch build with styrene this stuff sticks like a boss.
Also if you saturate the joint you can squeeze the joint together and overfill the joint ensuring a great bond.
