    Hi Alan,

    You might want to do as Martin says.
    And use pins as described!πŸ‘
    I would use slow drying glue for this!🀞

    Hi Alan,

    Take your time.
    Remember Zap-a-Gap sets instantly!
    But you shouldn't run into any problems!
    I've used it on ABS plenty of times with no problems at all!

    Hi Alan,

    I've used Cyano on all of my Plastic models!
    I believe UHU Plast Plus cures slowly.
    I don't use it! But have heard of it!
    Where Cyano cures very quickly!

    If you decide to use Cyano.
    Get "Zap-a-Gap Medium CA+"
    1oz Bottle which will be plenty!

    Good luck on your Build!πŸ‘

    Cheers, Ed

    πŸ“ Main Cabin Lights!
    1 month ago by figtree7nts ( Commodore)
    Flag
    View All
    OK, this is an after thought!
    I have decided to add cabin lights.

    The main running lights are good looking.
    But, the model looks a bit dark.

    So, With Dougs help "RNinMunich"!
    I will be adding some 3mm LED's.
    They'll be about every 5" apart!

    Except for the Aft lights.
    Which will be about 2.5" apart!

    This should add some nice lighting to her!

    Lets see what happens!!!🀞

    It’s been really hot here!
    Haven’t had time to go to the pond!
    But, have kept myself busy on the Computer!
    Have done quite a few upgrades to my Computer!
    I have upgraded it’s software and hardware wise!
    I did however take time out.
    To put an aft running light on Brooklyn!
    I know, I know eventually I’ll get to the pond! πŸ™‚
