I am using Model Master liquid cement and I keep reading about brushing on liquid cement.

Which method is better or gives better control? How or what do you use to clean the brush when done? What cement do you use?

Thanks. Smile [:)]

I prefer Tenax 7R applied with a Touch-N-Flow applicator.

I like both the Testor's liquid cement and the Tamiya liquid cement. Tamiya comes in both a regular and extra thin, and is supplied with a very fine brush applicator that is superb. For the Testor's I use a natural sable 1/0 round brush. The brush really doesn't need to be cleaned since liquid glues are all organic solvents--much the same as paint thinner.
And yes, I also use superglues in various viscosities, epoxies, and good old Elmer's white glue.

FOr the bulk of my modelling, I use Tamiya liquid cement. I find their brush applicator more than good enough for the job. It's of quite a good quality, and I've never had problems with it.
I use testors tube glue for large joints. Have testors liquid cement as well, haven't used it yet.
White school glue I use in my dios all the time, and I wouldn't know where I'd be without superglue.

I use Ambroid Pro Weld and Zap gap filling superglue and good ol elmers glue. as for the applicators they have there own most of the time. and I have no trouble with it. with elmers glue just a normal paint brush will work.

I use the Testors liquid cement in the oddly shaped black squeeze bottle - has its own precision applicator on it. They also make a good clear parts cement in a smiliar shaped but smaller bottle. And of course there's Zap-a-Gap CA

I use the Tamiya Glues, 2-part epoxy glues(2min, 5 min & 10 min), small tubes of super-glue with special thin throw-away nozzles.

I use IPS Weld ON #3 and apply it with a # 1pointed sable brush for the majority of my gluing. I keep CA (thin and gap filling), 5 minute epoxy and JB weld Quick Set handy for jobs that regular glue won't or can't handle (even got a tube of the old style styrene glue - use it every two or three years)

The superglues I've used become brittle & the parts flake apart after a short while. Super glue is great as a wood spot filler though. I use Ambroid Proweld with the Touch n Flow tube for most stuff, but when that is too big of a risk for messing up surrounding paint, I use Testors orange tube.

I prefer Tenax 7R for tasks like joining fuselage halves. for glueing small parts, I use CA or Testors liquid cement, depending on the application. White glue I use mostly for canopies, and I keep some quick set epoxy around for the occasional time it may be best suited for the task.
