Another small project I have is this great model of Inquisitor Lok from Forge World. But what is that next to him you ask?
That's the glue I'm using.
It's women's fingernail glue. You know... the stuff women use to attach their fake nails with. I have a friend who scratchbuilds with plasticard and this is what he swears by. He'll use nothing else.
Me personally, I think it's basically superglue.
I will say that it comes with a great, tapered tip that allows you to apply the tiniest of drops in the perfect place. Given the size of the good Inquisitor there, I'll need to be as neat as possible when putting this guy together.
The only drawback I have is that it can be a little difficult to get the glue out of the bottle. Maybe it's the tip, maybe it's because you can't really squeeze the bottle since it's so rigid. Either way, it's a small price to pay for being able to apply the perfect amount of glue without having to resort to using a pin to apply it.
This guy has some absolutely stunning detail when you get your hands on him for real. Unfortunately, it comes with a price (and not just money), I had a good amount of flash and mold lines that had to be removed and even a few areas that were so thin they didn't fill when cast and had to be filled with greenstuff.
First time model builders should shy away from this guy, he's not a model you want to go experimenting with. That's why I do all of this with other people's models. I would never take these kinds of chances with my own stuff.
Same as I do for all my models, a small piece of plasticard under each foot raises him just enough so he doesn't look like he's sinking in quicksand when I base him.
I'm going to paint him up similar to the Forge World version and I'll post the results when I get him done.
