Glue test. Gorilla/Flex/Loctite/JB Weld Youtube.
« on: October 06, 2008, 11:35:41 pm »

I am hoping to plate my hull that I have built with plasticard (10 thou of an inch), but am not sure what glue to use, its a wooden planked hull that has had two coats of poly resin applied to it. I was thinking along the lines of evostick or some other kind of contact adheisive. But was hoping some one who has maybe done this kind of work, could advise me. Thankyou.

The above should read "I am hoping to plate my hull, that I have built with plasticard"  and not that I have built the hull out of plasticard. But that I want to plate a wooden hull that has had 2 coats of resin with plasticard. Phew if only I had put that comma in the right place... {-) :D

Evostick would be fine. Do paint over it all, though!
