Adhesive ?

Postby wingnut2 » Mon Aug 26, 2019 4:30 pm

Hi Guys :) I was "scratching around" on YouTube and I came across this posting but I found it very surprising in the way he applies the adhesive to bring parts together :o

What are your thoughts ? or is that the way you work ? I would be interested to know ?

If you thoughts or your opinions are "NEGATIVE" or "CONDESENDING" then please keep them to yourself thanks.
It is not my intention to offend anyone but if the "cap fits" ect, I look forwards to your reply's

Thats the way I glue parts together when I use liquid cement (Humbrol in my case)

Hi Les :) thanks for your reply as always, It's been a long time for me plastic kit wise, all we had back in the days (50yrs ago) was the Airfix glue in tubes and I always ended up with more glue on my fingers than anywhere else :laughing-rolling: not to mention getting "high" because of the smell of the stuff :doh: :laughing-rolling:

From what I can see in the video, that is how I use glue, the Tamiya thin is so light it don't go on gloppy.

I must have around 15 different glues but only use about three. Humbrol poly cement, Tamiya extra thin instant grab is excellent but can get everywhere if you're not careful.

Hi Guy's, thanks for your thoughts and advice :) but :think: but from what I have seen from some of builds on the forum parts are painted then glued, so can this "flooding" technique (I will call it) be still used :?: without affecting the paint job ?

I use both methods.

If painting parts first, then carefully remove the paint on the area's where it is to be glued. Gluing parts that have paint on them don't stick well.

I stick parts together before painting if they are to be the same colour and using filler to fill in any joins.

I paint parts first if the parts are to be painted with different colours, then I carefully scrape off the paint where they join together before gluing.

Hi Roy :) thanks for that, it all sounds a bit "complicated" for me anyway, I was born at a very early age :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

It's very simple, if you are gluing together say for example your VW Van, you would glue together the main body first, then you would use filler on any visible joins and then when the filler dries, you would sand the join flat and then paint the Van body one colour.

If you were adding the bumpers which would be of a different colour, you would paint these first before you glue them on. Where the parts need to have glue applied, you would gently scrape away the paint using either some emery paper, nail file or a sharp pin. Apply the glue and then stick your bumpers to the main Van body which you have previously painted. Very simple

He is using what is known as capillary action to make the glue spread around the edges. This is the usual way for this type of glue to be used, although there are different ways you can use various glues and you can use different methods throughout a build depending on what is going to be joined.
