Easy Star II glue question


Directions for the Easy Star II say use CA glue. Can I use hardware store Super-Glue, eg. Locktite Ultra Gel Control? If so, does this require an accelerator when used with foam - I don't seem to need that for other applications. What glue available in the USA should I use?

I don't even see the recommended Zacki -ELAPORŪ # 59 2727 glue for sale when I search the internet.

Have you tried Beacon Foam-Tac on ELAPOR foam? From the Easy Star II manual: "This model is not made of Styrofoam™, and it is not possible to glue the material using white glue, polyurethane or epoxy adhesives."

Any brand of CA will do. I prefer the thin stuff for the build and the gel for repairs where the parts don't fit so good.

I'll second that. Works great on any kind of foam.
