What adhesive you would recommend as having the best adherence for the plastic used by FRROM / the Czechs for this kit ?
Having the name of the basic material(s) may be even more useful than generic brand names, because the latter may differ from one continent to another.
Thank you,
Florin

I noticed this YouTube video that's right for this topic:

Hi,
I successfully used the glue from Tamiya. Extra Thin Cement.

In as far as I recall, you are in New York. There is a model shop in Manhattan on 23 W 45 St (downstairs, in the basement), not far from Grand Central, called The Red Caboose. It is mainly a train model shop but they have some plastic models too. Ask them for "plastic cement". Testors or Tamiya are some popular brands.
You can get "plastic cement" online from Squadron http://www.squadron.com/model-cement-s/2523.htm
Hth,
Radu

Yeah, Tamyia extra thin is good but takes a little to get used to it if you haven't used liquid glues before (it evaporates very quickly if you don't keep the parts to be glued in contact). I have also used Tamyia Limonene (with lemon flavor :D ) that is supposed not to be so irritating due to the fumes and is a bit thicker than the extra thin.

I think the best approach for any new adhesive is to test it first on something different from the irreplaceable components of a kit.

Good Morning Radu,

When I wrote "the Romanian version of the licensed Savoia-Marchetti SM.79" I meant the version with 2 engines, designed by the Romanian engineers.
I would not have one moment of doubt that the famous original Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 (with 3 engines) was already created by the model/toy manufacturers.
So, you meant that Azur FRROM created the scale model for the 2 engines version ?

Best regards,
Florin

Florin, the frrom only produced the JRS and JIS models, not the SM 79 with radial engines.

10 or 15 years ago, i found a mixkit - an ancient SM 79 3 engines from airfix with some plastic pieces to create the twin engine bomber. It is called Novart, and it is french. I will build it on day. So, for me , this is the only SM 79 radial twin engine bomber that exists in kit.

Happy new year!

Pbm
