Glue Applicator by tidtug Lieutenant   Posted: 35 minutes ago
There are so many glues on sale now it's a job to know what to use.

I found this 1/4 scale Winston/Hank head in a local model shop for £3.50. Needless to say I glued the front & back together &reinforced inside the head with plasticard. When set I chopped his head off & Dremel'd off the headphones & head strap. I've just filled the resultant gaps & strengthened around the chin & neck area with Milliput. Best leave it until tomorrow to harden up, I may just need to Milliput inside the hair line as I'm guessing I'll have to grind his hair away to fit his head in a helmet.

Steering wheel by Midlife306 Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
This was quite easy to be fair, I just pushed the Milliput into the gap in the blue foam & left it a couple of days to go properly off. I then pulled it from the blue foam, sanded it flat as possible & chamfered all 4 corners with a file, then it was just a case of sanding the profile round. For added realism I used a small sanding drum in the Dremil to add the indentations on the back edge. I drew out the centre & spokes on some plastic card & cut the shape out on the hot wire cutter, a quick going over with a file & then I noticed on the picture that there was a slight dish on the wheel, to replicate it I pencil marked where the bends needed to be & offered the back of the spokes upto but not touching the hot wire cutter, this put the heat in the right position to allow me to bend it. I then superglued it all together. Took me a couple of hours start to finish. I've a bit more detail to add before I paint it, I'm going to have a go at distressing the paint so you can see silver under the black as in the pic. I think Milliput is awesome stuff, it's the next step down from a 3D printer I guess. Cheers Wayne

If not Bang Good try Gear Best LOL👍😁😁😁

Glue Applicator by onetenor Commander   Posted: 4 days ago
Not quite the same thing but something useful When using say a Bottle of Aliphatic or P.V.A. or similar glue it can get abit messy with lack of control of the flow. Bang good sell small plastic dispenser bottles which you can decant you glue into from your bigger bottle.Makes things a lot neater. Very cheap too

Glue Applicator by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Joe Did some more research and found a video on the Deluxe Site This really is a very fine nozzle dispenser and uses capillary action to deliver just the right amount of solvent to produce an invisible joint. They also recommend using for superglue accelerator by applying after the joint is closed to assist the setting process. Much neater way than brush or spray and will not result in marks on the surrounding area. For anyone building fine scale models a really good aid. Cheers Dave

Same principle as Revell Contacta Professional, which you can also refill, and it has a longer needle. Devil to clean out if it bungs up 😡 Cheers 😎

Thanks Dave for your input,I agree with you be interesting to hear what others have to say Regards Joe

Glue Applicator by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Joe I was intrigued so did a search. Aimed at the plastic kit market I suspect, but looks well made and will certainly deliver just the right amount of glue for those intricate jobs. Be useful to hear if anyone has used and if it is suitable for other types of glue Dave

Er slight Problem by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi Dave I don't think I am that but we did a build blog and the pics are from that. Yes you do need to support the frames and keel and plank equally on each side and wait until the glue has dried before removing. No stringers needed as 1/4 ply frames screwed to the baseboard. Once planked the inside was fibreglassed and the outside covered in glass cloth so the structure was very light and robust for a 9' model. Hope you manage to get your hull made on the next attempt. Dave

Hi All, As anybody used a Pin Flow Solvent Glue Applicator and if so what did you think of it.I'm toying with the idea of using one,seems a neat way of applying the solvent Regards Joe

The Kent Clearview screen by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
There is a white metal ‘ring’ supplied in the kit for the Kent Clearview screen but it is too large and doesn’t look particularly ‘scale’. So after some research on the web and some help from other forum members I found enough information to make one from scratch. The outer ring was made from a narrow section of pvc pipe that I had to hand and this was cut to length in a mitre block and then sanded down to the right thickness on some abrasive paper and then sprayed matt black. I didn’t use the perspex screen supplied in the kit as the hole was too large but the small circular cut-out piece was the right diameter to fit into the ring that I made, the new screen was cut from a new piece of perspex sheet and a hole drilled through the centre to locate the rotating part of the screen. The parts were assembled onto the new screen using canopy glue applied very sparingly with a dressmaking pin. The motor drive assembly on the inside of the screen and the black triangular part that sits on the outside of the screen were made from some black plasticard and these parts were also fixed in place with canopy glue. I used a brass panel pin with the head filed down and painted black for the central bearing of the screen but when I applied a very small amount of canopy glue to fix it capillary action unexpectedly drew the glue between the two ‘panes’ of perspex 😡 Not what I wanted to happen but I decided to leave it to dry to it’s clear state and then assess the situation. Fortunately the glue is not too conspicuous to be much of a concern but it is nevertheless an unwanted blemish that I will have to accept 😭 The finished piece was then glued into the wheelhouse with a few dots of canopy glue and looks quite good as long as you don’t look too closely 😎

Taycol Pt 3. New Brushes Pt1 by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
1) Carefully flattened first old brush with flat jaw pliers and traced it and stick-glued to the fozzy sheet, 2) Raw cut of blank. I use tin snips with fine serrations on one blade. stops the snips skidding and minimises curling 😉 3) First raw blank next to original after careful flattening with tack hammer and anvil and removing minor twist. For the next one I think I'll drill it in stage 1 🤔 😎
