Scott, the secret in building this kit is the glue I use.
I have gone off Tamiya super thin, as it takes ages to dry, and if there is over application of the Tamiya glue, the damage the glue does to the surrounding surface and detail is not what I want.
So. ! I use the glue ALL rail road modellers use, called MEK. !
MEK evaporated quickly, and if there is any excess applied, the evaporation rate is so rapid, it has NO time to cause any surface damage.
MEK is great when it comes to using 'liquid glue', with capillary action being the way to have surfaces bond rapidly and cleanly.
The bond is clean and solid.
Providing your well planned in what your going to glue together, it is the very best way to assemble your kits.
That is when the detail you want to do is easier, knowing that it will stay in place and not sag due to the slow drying time like Tamiya.
AND, it is available at any hardware store in the plumbing department, at about $10,00 for 500ml.
