Mr. Hobby Mr. Cement S
Posted by ajd3530 on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 1:18 AM
Hello all. I was curious if anyone had used both this cement AND Tamiya extra thin cement, and could say one works compared to the other. From what I gather, they are more or less the same, but I was hoping to hear a firsthand account before I gave it a try.. The Tamiya extra thin is getting harder to come by in these parts for some reason.

I have a bottle of the older Mr. Cement Deluxe which is probably the same stuff. Very slightly thicker than Tamiya Extra Thin and a little stronger smelling as well. I prefer Tamiya Extra Thin, but the Gunze works great too. Sprue Brothers has it in stock,

It seems that the Mr. Cement S dries faster than the Tamiya thin cement. I would like to see what other people say about this topic as I am not as experienced.

I like Mr Cement a little better. It grabs better and dries faster.  The less you use, the bettet the joint.

But Tamiya Extra Thin is pretty as good as well.  I use both.

Nothing unusual about having trouble finding a Tamiya product. I've run into shortages with paint I needed a while back and a few months later their large bottle of x20a thinner couldn't be ordered from anywhere for several months. Luckily I stumbled onto 4 bottles of the thinner in a Hobby shop during the shortage and snatched them all up.

Most here seem unaware that there is a quick setting version of Tamiya Extra Thin available-

And I would hardly say the availability of any Gunze product is any better than Tamiya's stuff.

Gunze is harder to get in my neck of the woods.  And I’m 2,500 miles closer to Japan!  Sad
