  1. Mr. Cement S extra thin question

    dnl42, thanks for the reply. Is Gator's Grip a strong enough bond for the PE to plastic on the external fuselage where there might be handling and masking? I plan to use a lot of PE as shown on the photos below. Those are from the Eduard site. They show the Eduard external PE that I will be attaching to my Italeri 1/48 HH-60H. I want to be sure the Gator's Grip is strong enough to hold all that PE on.
  2. Mr. Cement S extra thin question

    Thanks for the replies. I joined up on Britmodeller and asked him his technique for using Mr. Cement S extra thin with PE on plastic. He replied saying he uses 400 grit sandpaper on the back of the PE and on the plastic where the PE will be attached. He said it only works for small parts but you still have to be careful handling and masking. It seems to work for him but he works in 1/72 and I only work in 1/48 so some 1/48 PE parts might work with his method. I will stick to CA and or two part epoxy though. Most of the PE I have is for the Italeri 1/48 SH/HH-60 Sea Hawks and some of the external PE parts are big so I would prefer a stronger hold like CA.

    When you include them in your set make sure the bottom part is angled to follow the panel line as shown in the photo below. It is shown on an F-14D but they are the same on the late A, B/D. Cross Delta makes them in both 1/48 and 1/32.

  6. I was reading a post over on Britmodeller where someone said he used Mr. Cement S extra thin to attach PE to plastic. I don't have a Britmodeller account so I can't ask the question there. Has anyone tried using Mr. Cement S extra thin to attach PE parts to plastic? Can anyone comment if it works? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The Academy MH-60S kit doesn't have the USN chaff/flare included. The Cobra Company MH-60S resin set includes them. The USN chaff/flare dispensers are different from the US Army and USAF versions. Here are a couple of an MH-60S showing the chaff/flare just in front of the "Y" in NAVY. Another one from the other side. A shot showing the angle they are mounted at. This one shows the mount for the chaff/flare dispenser. Another one of the chaff/flare mount.
