The bottom plate doesn't sit flat... would it be OK to put a slits down the middle and glue it down?

Make sure you have a bottle of nail varnish remover handy when you're working with CA a lot, just in case (just make sure it contains acetone).  In any case, warm water and not panicking helps otherwise if things you don't want on your own apendages get stuck.

I've started to use micro tip applicators with thin CA.  They're cheap enough for a pack.  It helps place a dot much, much better.  Luckily they all seem to have standardised on CA bottle tip size because the applicators seem to fit all the bottles I have from all sorts of places so far.

Keep with the build, it's intersting to watch.


Cheers,

Rich

The model railway guys like this stuff for card buildings -I have a tub somewhere, it doesn't seem much different from PVA to me.  Roket Card Glue from Deluxe is a bit different -it's a bit like CA and sticks really quick.  Bit strange stuff.

I always check total bottom line. I'm also an Amazon prime member but that glue is not on prime and free delivery to anyone.
The Proxxon 250 Lathe is hundreds of pounds cheaper than anywhere else  O0  but I can't afford it  <:(

Hi Martin,
Any old PVA or Aliphatic 'white glue' kicking around that's going thick? will be similar to above,
or leave the bottle top off a while to thicken it -
white glue will allow time to position parts and none of the white staining soaking through the card, that can happen with cyno.

Finger pressure will transmit heat through card and part set white glue in moments,
or because this is more akin to aeromodelling - get the pins out !
my recent revelation - good old BluTack for positioning, this has taken over from pins, clamps and jigs etc wonderful stuff.

... funnily enough, I've ordered some Neodymium magnets to help with the clamping!

...good, outside the box thinking Batman, they would work well, small flat lead weights can also be useful !
PVA poured in a dish and left while to evaporate and thicken should work a treat depending on how thick/absorbant your card is,
its too 'wet'? straight out of the bottle.
50 years ago (pre cyno) it was the only glue available in the commercial art world for assembling mock up card packaging etc,
then along came Spraymount and changed the game !  would like a for every can of that I've inhailed over the years !!

I'll be joining you on the card modeling front before long, the way things are going -
had no idea of the wide range of model subjects available in card kits, stunning projects to build.
