/41 Willy's Hot Rod
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, August 6, 2003 7:35 PM
I was building a '41 Willys, and putting the breathers on top of the engine. Any tips for a new modeler about gluing butt joints like this? I'm trying to avoid using too much glue, and I want it to look clean (mine doesn't). Any help out there?

Like Hoser said, Super Glue. You can use an accelerator to dry the glue instantly.
I found a spray bottle of it at my hobby shop. Just be careful as it will harm some paints.

You might try drilling a small hole on the underside of the breather and a corresponding hole in the valve cover. Use a small piece of brass wire (or a piece of a straight pin) held in place with 5-minute epoxy or cyanoacrylate. It can be applied from the underside so as to be inconspicuous. Not only will this method present a neat appearance, but the small parts will remain where they belong.
