Tried a new glue today

(Just started a seperate thread about this......taken from one of my others)

I tryed this new glue today from the model shop in town and it puts the Tamiya stuff to shame...and only half the price !!
It's a water like glue. You assemble the parts together first (unpainted), then you use a brush to brush the glue on. Now being like water it travels along the join line. You hold it together for 30secs and its done.....fantastic !!
Its great for doing engine halfs. Put the engine halfs together, brush the glue on, watch it flow along the join line and its done. You can then sand the join line after 2-3 minutes and it works almost like a small putty filler giving a perfect "no seam line finish"
The only sad thing about this glue is that it is only made by the model shop i visit at home here.
The other good thing about it is that when you have finished you can brush the remaining glue over you fingers and blow on it and it evaporates away with no sign of any marks on your skin...or just blow on the paint brush, then you can use it for painting !!
The Tamiya EVO im doing....i assembled the whole body with it before painting etc (Front and rear bumbers and skirts)
This is the stuff here...

Is that address on the bottle the address of the hobby shop?

Also what's the price? Could be worth making a trip up to Palmy for .

Sounds a lot like the Tenax and Ambroid ProWeld I use. But you're right, liquid cements offer incredible results. Three years ago, Scale Auto Enthusiast did an article on a build-up of Revell's Austin-Healey 100-6 that showed using liquid cement to get a seamless multipiece body without putty. It was sweet. ^_^

Oh yeah, many experienced mecha builders have been using liquid glue to get rid of seam lines. If you've done any Gundam kits thats not MG or PG, then you know what I mean - 90% of the pieces have seam lines. Ever since I've moved on to cars, I can't say I've missed puttying every piece

yup that stuff sounds like Tenax, its the best plastic welder ive ever used. its not actually a cement though, its more like plastic solvent. plastic cements usually leaves a residue behind gluing the parts together. where as the solvent will disolve and liquify the plastic, fusing the joints together directly from plastic to plastic with no gluing agent in between.
