Question

Hi Folks

 

If one is building up layers of plasticard to form complex compound curves what glue do folks use so that the joints cut easily, file and sand easily? I'm fairly ok on this with wooden model aircraft materials (e.g. balsa and lite ply), but I've only ever used polystyrene cement with plasticard before, or white PVA glue to stick plasticard to balsa structural beams on buildings. Many thanks. Also is there a plastic or similar filler glue folks use with plasticard?

As suggested, various types will work. My personal favourite has been car body filler, from the likes of Halford's. A two part job that sets in minutes and is easily sanded/filed. It was used extensively to get the subtle curves on my SLNCR Railcar B [see David's Workbench] and works just as well when filling in gaps on etched brass or whitemetal kits.
