Filling seams where superstructure meets main Deck
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, June 26, 2003 2:15 AM
I was wondering if anyone can give me a pointer on how to fill in the
seams where the superstructure meets the deck. Especially on a DML
Spruance on the aft deck. It seems like the space is so tight that
you can't even squeeze in a needle file to erase any seams for that
matter put putty in the seam. Thanks in advance for the help.

Try using white glue spread out with a wet q-tip. I use the testors window maker stuff with the long pointed tip. You then paint after it dries (clear).

I will give you the same recommendation as Tim, use white glue. The Testor's stuff is also my favorite, however, I've used Microscale's Kristal Klear and Elmer's glue with equal success. To control the quantity, I apply it with the end of a very small diameter steel wire, about an inch long, that I've inserted into the end of a short length (5 inches) of 1/8 inch dowell. Gives me good control of a drop of glue at a time.
