Description Product Tags Reviews

Company’s favourite glue for cementing photo-etched parts. This CA glue forms flexible bond that withstands much more punishment than classic brittle CA. This essentially means less accidentally lost parts and more productive and enjoyable work as there is much less need to reglue vulnerable parts. Extended open time (150% the standard CA) allows for good positioning of the parts.You also will be able to glue tricky parts (both PS and metal) that produce tension. Flexy is less aggressive and more easily removed when necessary it doesn’t “eat plastic” as classic CAs

    Bought this glue after watching the “how to” video on the VMS website. Having had mixed success with super glues in the past, this glue has made all the difference to my modelling. Delayed setting, and the ability to remove and reposition parts even after the glue has set has made a world of difference to my modelling.Bought some of the thin version but have yet to try. Get some and get stuck in !

    I am building the Trumpeter 1/200 HMS Nelson and have drilled out the portholes to add etched brass versions. You need to have them lined up carefully with the rigole ends level also. Normal super glue which I have used previously sets too quickly so they can be uneven and it has little sheer strength so parts can be “wiped” off accidentally when handling to fit new parts. This glue grabs but sets slowly giving time to adjust the position with a cocktail stick getting a good result. It also holds firmer so no parts have come off. Very good for photo etch fixing.

    First time I’ve used this type of glue from this manufacture and have to say that I am impressed with it. So far I’ve only used it to stick brass to plastic.
    Parts to be stuck were fragile brass window frames to go onto a 1/48 Sea King conversion and I needed time to ensure they covered the new openings correctly before the glue went off.
    So thumbs up from me and I would definatley buy this glue again.

    Bought for a project. Haven’t used yet but was delivered in quick time. No complaints.

  5. Been using this glue for quite a while now. Excellent glue for attaching PE parts. My only complaint is that when I am finished with the glue, and then go to use it again later, I find that the applicator tube is blocked and the glue does not flow very well. The storage bottle needs to be improved.

    First time I have used this glue. Excellent glue for attaching PE parts, works really well. Not hard any complaints about it as yet

    Top of the list in regards to P/E placement with no worries about setting to fast so you have time to position.. also on a side note regarding nozzle clogging I find Deluxe Materials Rocket “Re-Cap” works a treat and fits perfect

    Now my preferred super glue for p.e parts – getting a little longer to position parts before the glue sets. Has a good firm hold after it sets. I have to agree with another review that the inside of the cap clogs up very easily, so minus one star for that.
