A good precision poly overall in my view. It's slightly more viscous than Citadel's or Revell's, but I've found it's an easy enough quirk to adjust to.

Like both alternatives good timing with putting the lid back on is everything.

I tried this tool out for the first time today and I like it a lot. :)

The tiny loops really limits the amount of CA you apply. I have been using the Tamiya Strong CA glue, unsure how thick or thin this particular CA glue is, maybe in between, but not gel for sure.

Scott Dutton Try the newer one, its lighter in colour with the green top but has same name, but bottom of label has quick setting or quick drying. Its great, and pretty much my weapon of choice now. Dries in seconds.
14. January 2017 at 04:52:27
Przemek Przybulewski I have the Quick Setting version for some time but I used first time building frame for Luna-M. It have a strange smell, it reminds me models and glue from my childhood - those a good memories.
Glue is great, dries immediately and what more important its not damaging paint too much.
14. January 2017 at 13:04:16
berni Hello Mates, the glue is good. But it dissolves acrylic paint. I've found.
14. January 2017 at 13:46:14
Przemek Przybulewski Berni - yes it is but when you apply it very gentle and just a little bit it evaporates so quickly that it did not damage my layer of paint. I tried in few different spots and had the same result - if applied in small quantities then paint will remain intact but add more and it will dissolve it. Anyway it is less aggressive to paint comparing to regular Thin cement.

Hunter Cummins I need a good resin glue, wish I could get this stuff in the states! :( :)
20. August 2015 at 11:44:35
Holger Kranich You can get it per mail from the manufracturer. Just buy a kit and the glue or just a crate of glue and you have value for money ;)
www.modellbau-koenig.de (Thats why its called MBK = ModellBau König)
20. August 2015 at 12:32:11
John Van Kooten May not be that straightforward though ;) I think glues and other (liquid) chemicals are resticted items that cannot be sent through regular mail into the USA. Not without the proper documents and certificates anyway. I'm talking about importing from Europe, not shipping within the USA itself. The latter is a different story entirely.

I think Canada has similar restrictions and the UK definitely has some really hefty (and ridiculous) snail mail restrictions.

And I think Hunter would be getting quite a bad deal buying a (any) kit from Europe ;) lol! The USA has much, much lower prices.
20. August 2015 at 13:07:58
Holger Kranich Would be much easyer to send him a parcel with a bottle of glue, hu?
20. August 2015 at 13:18:44
Hunter Cummins I'd be interested in any way to get this stuff!!
20. August 2015 at 15:00:12
John Van Kooten Buying the glue isn't the problem ;) you can simply order it from the MBK website using PayPal or a credit card.

When you order from MBK shipping costs to the USA are always €30 (approx. $33.55), no matter what payment method you use and regardless of parcel's total weight. If you order over €200 (approx. $223.66) you get free shipping.

But what I was trying to say is that it might become a problem when the parcel goes through customs in the USA. If there are any restrictions in place that prohibit importing (certain) chemicals, and trust me, they do check, then customs is going to block the shipment and destroy it. And maybe even fine you (the recipient).
But I don't know the exact laws on importing chemicals into the USA. And there may even be different sets of rules for each state?
I have read some articles about USA customs services that mention certain restrictions. But maybe those rules don't apply to glues like these? I really don't know. There is a (relatively) fast way to get an answer though: call or email your local customs office and ask them :)

Whether you order it yourself or whether we would send you a parcel doesn't matter. It still needs to go through USA customs and it is still "importing chemicals into the USA", regardless of who sends or receives it ;)

I have also just checked shipping costs to the USA with my local post office:

- Parcel up to 2Kg. without track & trace (so no way to track it, when it gets lost, it's gone) costs €18 (approx. $20). Cannot send heavier parcels without T&T, only up to 2Kg.
- Parcel up to 2Kg. with track & trace (insurance up to €500 included) costs €25.95 (approx. $29)
- Parcel up to 10Kg. with track & trace (insurance up to €500 included) costs €59.95 (approx. $67)

So yeah... shipping costs as calculated by MBK are quite reasonable ;)

There is another catch though: VAT

You will pay VAT when you order items from Europe. As a US citizen, you are eligable for VAT return (that's 19% VAT in Germany, 21% in the Netherlands) because you guys in the US you don't pay VAT on products.

I don't know how this is handled when you order from a European webshop. Do they automatically deduct the VAT on checkout? I do know that when I order from a shop in the US, they are legally bound to charge prices including VAT for the country you are living in (and they do, it's a global trade law). So I am guessing this works both ways, where you should automatically NOT be charged VAT since you are ordering from the US? But I'm not sure about that, obviously :) it's definitely something you should check though because it will save you a LOT of money in the end ;)
20. August 2015 at 17:39:30
Fabian D. MBK does have an option for shipping aboad, if I remember corrcetly VAT will be deducted on checkout.
20. August 2015 at 17:53:50
John Van Kooten Yes, the shipping prices I wrote at the beginning of my previous post are from the MBK website. You can choose what country to ship to on this page and see what they charge: modellbau-koenig.de/Information/7/Versandkosten.htm

And good to know they do automatically deduct VAT. Thanks!

Gordon Sørensen I haven't seen this around my neck of the woods, but with all this talk, now I want to try it....
8. September 2014 at 16:02:10
H K Gordon, it is certainly not a must have, but it is very helpfull especially if you need a fast bonding or you only need a tiny amount of glue.
8. September 2014 at 17:44:01
Choppa Nutta Good News !!
E Models will be stocking Tamiya extra thin cement 40ml (87003 8) in 3 weeks time for £3.19 !! :D

Pete, the manager of the store phoned me up today because I wrote them saying how miffed I was about the new website and how the links didn't work and why could I no longer see Mr Cement S etc. etc. Turns out they do have Mr Cement S and he offered me free postage !!! :D
So I bought two bottles seeing as he was being so cool about it, really nice guy and I like the service, well worth checking them out. Apparently they are 10% cheaper than RRP too which we like :)

Choppa Nutta Phil you must know your stuff when it comes to chemistry, not sure I would trust myself well enough to go full on industrial, I bet it works out cheaper for you though ?

Btw. Tamiya extra thin product no. should read 870038
I forgot putting an " 8 " next to a " ) " gives you a 8) ... anyhow. :D

I totally agree with you guys! This is the best plastic glue EVER! I have two bottles as well and will buy a few more this week, also just to be sure ;) haha!

Luckily, one bottle goes a long, long way!
18. July 2014 at 16:32:28
Edgars Bizūns Well one bottle for me works for about 5-7 months.
18. July 2014 at 22:01:50
John Van Kooten Time is not a good measurement for me, I build very slowly ;)

In my case one bottle will last me about 20 1/35th scale kits, in a combination of all sizes, from PaK to Sd.Kfz.250/251 to Jagdtiger. That includes me being very generous with the amounts I apply AND using it to fill small gaps and holes :)
19. July 2014 at 06:42:02
Edgars Bizūns Then you must build very slowly :) I use this stuff to glaze details and achieve factures etc too, so it goes faster for me.
19. July 2014 at 08:22:18
John Van Kooten Yeah, I do build very slowly. Time is not on my side as far as hobbies is concerned ;) It takes me at least a month to finish even a simple PaK38 gun :P so that's not exactly fast LOL

But the glue is awesome

Jermaine Hoskin Steve, Do you use it for masking or does it have some other function for you? I have a bunch but have never used it.
13. March 2014 at 16:43:28
Steve Wilson Hi Jermaine...
It has a few main uses for me, one is when I'm dry fitting a kit it holds some parts together.
I put a blob on the end of a kebab skewer and place a small piece of the kit I'm building on it, so I can spray it, I also leave it there till fully cured. That's just two uses, but there are loads more :)
It's like a crocodile clip without the teeth marks
