As mentioned above, this glue would be ideal for those who are sensitive to the odor of standard model cement, or for younger modelers, with proper adult supervision. It is a definite improvement over the old non toxic cement of the past.

The cement should not be used to flood the plastic parts because it will take ages for them completely dry. For example, if you use too much glue to join the fuselage halves of an aircraft kit, you will often have to wait days before you can start sanding down the joint. If you start sanding and paining too soon a small ridge-like depression may form at the location of the joint. This is often called a ghost seam line.

Warning– You must be careful with the thin plastic cement. When you are pressing the pieces together and you manage to accidentally touch your own finger with the brush, you will end up with your fingerprint imprinted into the surface of the plastic part. It is not difficult to fix with sandpaper and/or putty but it’s extremely annoying. You’ve been warned. The aim of this series of entries in your SMN Techniques Bank is to help anyone who wants to know more about the different types of glue out there and what they should, and can, be used for. This is especially aimed at any of you who are returning to scale modelling after a long break or perhaps new to the hobby – there is certainly a bewildering choice of products readily available and this entry covers my suggestions and I hope you find it helpful. The glue can be used to glue canopies of aircraft models or windscreens of car models without fear of them getting damaged. If you accidentally put the glue where you don’t want it, just wipe it off with a moistened q-tip. The glue is waterproof when cured. For example, a bit of isopropyl alcohol can be used to remove the cured glue.

Micro Kristal Klear is a glue which is typically used to glue clear parts to create small windows up to about ¼ square inch. As no strange, but the most difficult thing here is to buy acetone, good industrial quality .... with butyl acetate, it was more of a problem to find a convenient suitable glass container with a capacity of one liter, because where I bought butyl acetate, they sell it from one liter.Almost all plastic model kits require you to glue the parts of the kit together. The only exceptions are the snap-fit kits and even those can be glued to achieve a much better overall look. It is still going to have the stupidly long drying times that that type of glue has. You are still going to need to clamp the parts together for a few hours for it to set.

I don't recall when I read the tip (may have been here on BM) but Tamiya Airbrush Cleaner is almost the exact same formula as Tamiya Extra Thin. I gave it a try and Airbrush Cleaner glues styrene just fine. It is in fact pretty much the same thing as your regular white glue such as Elmer’s. Now you may be asking what on Earth you should pay so much for such a small bottle of PVA glue. The answer is that, unlike other glues, this one is guaranteed to dry crystal clear. Most normal PVA glues will not be as clear as the Micro Kristal Klear when they cure. This type of cement usually has the consistency of a syrup. It may take some time to dry completely, so you usually have enough time to slightly alter the fit of the glued parts. While the glue is drying, it can be a good idea to secure the parts together with clamps, masking tape, rubber bands, or whatever else you have on hand.and Mr. Hobby Mr.Cement something with the help, I took this advice ...in results, now I have 1 liter "Tamiya Extra Thin Cement" my own manufacturing! 😉 😁 😎
