    Sticking Etch and small parts in place

    hi ALL, I also discovered that Theatre Beard,/Eye Brow Gum etc is suitable to hold Etch parts in place. Either permantley (Internal Parts ) or before applyin a CA Glue.

Recently found it great to hold Wing struts in place on a surface when scratch assemblin' ....and STOPS where has that bit gorn now ! hhhhhhhhrrrrrr g.g.m.s. ! cheery "modellin' mumbas ! G
