Modelkasten Track Question
Posted by ps1scw on Friday, July 07, 2017 1:18 PM

Hello team,

I have a question today about Modelkasten workable tracks.  

Are these tracks compatable with Tamiya extra thin cement?  Will the tracks remain workable if used with the Tamiya product.

Thank you all in advance.

I have found Tamiya cement to have too much wicking power to be used on MoKa tracks.  Try using the Testors cement in the black bottle with the nozzle.  Make a puddle on a piece of glass and use a toothpick as an applicator.  Apply glue to the sides of the pin and then slide in place.  Try to use acrylic washes to finish your tracks to avoid the possibility of solvent-type thinners weakening the joints.  HTH.
