First blog post, woo!

I posted in the forums a while back asking if anybody had used this glue which I had bought at my LHS to build my Twisted Hobbys Vector. Nobody replied so I took it upon myself to write a little review on it for all the Googlers out there. Here is the same, revised post because I figure it might be easier to find here on my profile:

The color and consistency is very much like regular old Elmer's glue. It works by soaking into the pores of the foam foam, providing a low-buildup adhesion.

Good:
  • Safe, not smelly, and water-soluble.
  • Comes in a big bottle.
  • No special preparation is needed.
  • It isn't very visible at all when dried, provided you don't really gob it on.
Bad:
  • Too runny for my taste
  • Takes a while to dry fully; doesn't get tacky or set fast
  • Won't work well for gluing non-foam parts; I had to re-glue my motor mount because it just wouldn't bond.

Overall it's a great glue for repairs and builds, but is not an all-purpose glue by any means. I have used it successfully in builds and quick repairs many times. I would recommend trying it out if you happen to see some at your hobby shop, and see what you think.
