Yeah, so this'll be short and sweet.
At Adepticon I happened to be in the right place at the right time to buy up a bunch of bargains - it was a fire sale, baby!
I got so much stuff that weekend it required a new bag to hold it all... but more on that later! Anyway, those sprues are boxes I had to break down to fit; 2 Vendettas, 5 Chimeras, and 4 Death Co. boxed sets... for a price I'm loath to share, being so freakin' cheap!
So what's this all about?
I've long been a user of the 'super glue plus accelerator' combo, avoiding plastic glue like it was the plague. The Master Manipulator (every store needs one) is a big believer in the right tool for the right job...
...and swore by plastic glue. I did what I usually do with his advice - ignored him for years before accidentally seeing an example. In this case, watching him put together a Guard army in record time.
It's a pretty unbelievable difference! After a few moments of pressure, the glue is tacky enough to hold the models together until the seal is complete. He was flying through guard models!
So, darn it all, yet again the dude has a point. And yet again I'm years behind the curve. I picked up some of the new Citadel glue - pictured above - and tried it out on the models from Adepticon I was putting together.
All those years of wasted effort! I have simply never put vehicles together so fast or so well. The glue doesn't set immediately but will keep a hold, meaning you don't have to worry about it drying too fast and out of place. You have some time to manipulate the parts where you need them.
If you're still using super glue, save it for metal and resin. Buy this stuff for your plastics and don't look back!
