F16 Tamiya Urgent Help
Posted by michael151722 on Tuesday, July 25, 2023 8:17 PM

Hello,

I used Too much glue on one part and it leaked onto the top part, it looks really bad anyway to fix and re-model it to make it look as good as new again?

 

Thank you

What kind of glue?  If it's CA you could try a debonder.  If not I'd mask around the glue, sand it down, rescribe and repaint.

Thanks,

John

It is the liquid Tamiya Cement, judging by the pics is it fixable and did I saw off some of the plastic as well, I don't think I did tbh but it looks uneven for some reason. Also what do you mean by rescribe.

 

Thank you

When doing heavy sanding the sublte panel lines molded on the kit can get sanded off.  Rescribing would be using a scribe tool or the back of an exacto to restore the missing panel line

And try posting in general modeling.  You put this in airliners so it may not get the visibility you want.

Thanks,

John

Thank you, will try and post in the general forums. But do you think I saw off the model plastic or just the glue is sticking everything togethe? Also thank you for the video

Put masking tape around the glue to protect the non-glued surfaces and sand of the glue, do not saw.

Thanks,

John
