What type of glue did you use to keep the styrene in place before using the filler?

I use only Mercury Glue Products they are the strongest CA's on the market. There CA even melts the plastic and also glues it together so it is more like a weld.

Hey TC, where can you get styrene, and how do fillers work? Sorry for the dumb questions, but I hope to be building a daycab soon, and want to know cab and hood modding inside and out.

I'm not Paul... but If you don't have a local hobby shop that carries styrene then you can order it from Tower Hobbies. Here is the link to it.

The stuff is made by Evergreen Scale Models.

The Tower Hobbies Link


Evergreen Scale Models

As for the filler, you need it to "finish" the body work. The type TC and a lot of the others (Me included, thanks to TC) is made by Evercoat.

You can find it at your local auto body supply place or here

Evercoat.com


The link above is the stuff you want, even though it says "Metal" this is the stuff you want. It's about $40-$45 per quart.

This is a two part filler (Glaze) DO NOT buy the cheaper one part "spot Putty's", the stuff shrinks and cracks and is designed to be used before a glaze any way. Just go right to the good stuff..

Hope this helps

-Mike

The pics are all gone! Is it possible to make them appear again? I've a KH that I will be removing the sleeper from this winter. I have a idea what to do, but would be great to see how others have had success with their method(s).
