Playmobile boat
« on: November 29, 2011, 12:38:18 PM »

Bought this a couple of weeks ago for a Fiver, supposed to have a little add-on motor underneath, but I thought " put RC in it, 385 or similar motor inside and let the Grandchildren have fun" But there is a problem, the plastic it is made of doesn't seem to like any adhesive that I have, Cyano, Plastic Glue, 2 part Epoxy. Any ideas? I include a photo for you to see the boat.

hi, I don't know what plastic it is made from, but if it's the same stuff as Lego is made from...."Plastiweld" will work...regularly I use little lego blocks glued together to make larger square sided blocks, covered with plasticard....great for getting exact square sided.

Apparently MEC, Stabilit & Mark's Model Bits - 'MODELBOND Gel' all work....

(I've got 2 Titan's my self... plus a Noah’s Ark & 4469 Expedition Ship to convert!)

You couldn't let me into the secret of what prop/ motor set-up you used could you? A quick peek inside would be very useful!!

Thanks very much, but 10 cells? Wow! what are you driving? I thought that a 6 cell pack would be fine.
