a little off topic i think - but - whats good for resin parts?

 

 

 

I've always heard CA or epoxy.

I like to use CA gel with resin, and Bob Smith's IC-Gel is my preferred brand, FWIW. Nothing has fallen apart so far. Knock wood.

I don't have as much experience with resin as others here, so maybe there will be better advice to follow.

 

Ive got the Insta-Cure+ gap filling and Maxi-Cure extra thick and according to charlie at BSI, he says the Insta-Cure should work good.  Havent tried it yet and called after you posted only bc i didnt need to get another tube of glue - yet ;).   We'll see. 

 

Keep on building!

I completely agree. Any CA will work, and those two will work great on resin.

The IC-Gel is a just a personal preference of mine for a few reasons.

question - ive used the orange cap one recently.  worked good though i use mostly testors, may now say model master, in the triangular black bottle w/ the long nose....

 

The tamiya orange cap - i used it a little lately and ive noticed that once i brush it on, it starts to dry or evaporate almost immediately.  Is this normal?  Is it flashing off ?
