Model planes for me but I used this glue, it was a liquid and would melt the plastic. It was called EDC (some big long name) My dad called it Extra Darn Careful because it was toxic as heck but worked great. Fit the parts together dry, touch the seam with a toothpick dipped in this stuff, and it would wick along the seam melting it as it went in seconds. Let it dry for a minute or two and you had one piece of plastic.

Never heard of EDC. Sounds like it required a lot of precision and attention to detail.

Since we're confessing here, .... uh ....
I currently have several kits in various stages of assembly.

Go YOU!!! I look at them if I'm passing by. I have a lot of my models boxed up in someone's basement in Michigan.

I built model cars as a young teen, then built mainly WWII tanks and planes after that. I was hella good.

I built built mostly cars/trucks, but I did build battleships, too.

I think the stuff was based on ethylene dichloride (EDC) and was called a solvent weld, not a glue. I still have a small bottle of it I use from time to time.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

The dick that I am, I often take a tissue and saturate it with testors model glue and stick it under the keyboard tray of one of the unsuspecting saps at work. Holy crap nuggets Batman, I can smell that $h!t from 30 feet away. To much?

Fords friction modifier is great for those kind of pranks as well. Only need a couple of drops to really stink up a place. Place said drops on the heat register, and it gets really potent!

That's what happens when you fall asleep while nude sunbathing.

When you can read the names of the pilot and crew chiefs on the plane as it's zooming past, even when extremely cropped, it's an awesome lense. The AI Servo on the 5DIII is no slouch either.

If you zoom out a bit you should be able to capture the entire aircraft. If you were already at 100mm, run as you are way to close.

I'll have to buy a case.
