revell flower class corvette 1:72
« on: December 26, 2017, 06:25:57 pm »

Hope everyone had a nice christmas day, I am building the platinum revell flower corvette and was wondering if anyone has had any problems with the sticky back wooden deck not sticking very well. If so how did you combat it? ie which type of glue. Many thanks, Peter

Most injection moulded parts will still have traces of release agent on them so should be washed with warm soapy water and dried thoroughly before use.  failing that very small amounts of super glue might help but check on a scrap piece that it doesn't soak right through.

Also make sure you have sanded flush the area it sits on  Bill...
