What adhesive do you use for fixing the planking?

Been using thin ca. A small drop will crawl along a join quite a distance.

heya mate, you should give some ambroid a try, ( balsa cement ) it is great for planking, obviously takes longer to dry than CA, but quicker than aliphatic, and it sands beautifully,
which is a real bonus when dealing with thin planking.

Thanks for the suggestion Trumps. I used to use Ambroid exclusively.... before I discovered ca. For some things I find infinite patience, other times it goes away. This is why I'll never be an ultra scale modeler.

I am informed the Mercedes was water cooled... no fins. Well, mine will be the only air cooled Albatros. Cooked rear cyliders and all!
