The constant ingenuity of our modeling industry never ceases to amaze me—such is the case of colored model glue. This is novel approach which will provide a solution to an issue that many of us did not know existed.
Ammo by Mig’s statement provides the following information:
“Hold the parts together, apply the cement to the joint and allow it draw itself into the gap by capillary action. Its red [or blue] colour stands out against the plastic surface, clearly showing where it is being applied. This also allows you to be sure the entire joint is covered and will facilitate the sanding process. Completely dries in 10 minutes.”
Both glues (or cements) work very well and are comparable to those I often use from Tamiya. They seem to dry very fast, as I held them together for roughly a minute and they bond quite well. This is in addition to their red or blue colors, which show up against most of the plastics encountered. They also demonstrate their capillary action or ability to follow seam lines. As you can see from my very amateurish photos, the blue and or red cement are highly visible against the white plastic stock. I have been using these colored cement for several days now and am impressed with them. I highly recommend them to other modelers.
Thanks to AMMO by MIG for the review sample.
