Activator or Kicker for setting cyano glue immediately so that you can progress your models more quickly – Rite Lok Activator AC11 or spray versions
Micro Kristal Klear – white glue for attaching clear parts with ease so that they don’t fog or get damaged by the vapour strong glues (like cyano) give off. You can use some PVA white glues too for this purpose and KK has the edge because it bonds more strongly when dry.
Gator’s Grip Acrylic Hobby Glue – Simply an alternative to Micro Kristal Klear. Has much the same properties in practical terms and is slightly thinner. Creates a very strong bond when dry.
Revell Contacta Professional Mini – classic polystyrene cement also supplied in tube form. My use of this is pretty much restricted to using it to attach wheels to undercarriage legs. It’s ideal as the glue is quite thick and can be applied exactly to the locating hole and/or leg pin attachment point. The model is usually able to be placed on its undercarriage and then each wheel carefully adjusted using tweezers or the like to finely tune the angles and positions of the wheels before leaving well alone to fully dry overnight.
Micro Metal Foil Adhesive – does what it says on the bottle. Not a huge amount of use for this although it’s designed for use when adding bare metal foil (BMF) and aluminium foil to your models. Tim B has shown how to use this adhesive in a helpful series of videos on adding aluminium foil to a NA P-51D Mustang. See your SMN TB for that.
