i use rocket card glue of uhu for my scalescenes stuff works for me,,,,,


The only problem I find with UHU is the way it tends to 'string'. I just use ordinary PVA (slightly diluted) applied with a fine brush.

I think the Scalescenes kits are much better than the Metcalfe ones, not least because there are no exposed edges at the corners of buildings. Here's one a made earlier.

I use PVA for lots of things, but not tried it on card kits. Thanks for the tip.
I did find a UHU gel adhesive. Looks like the ordinary yellow tube, but is specially formulated not to string. Works well enough. A quick tip for card builders - I purloined a couple of wooden clothes pegs from the wife's washing line to use as clamps when glueing up.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Thanks Nobby. It's an extended version of the Scalscenes large station and there are still a few bits and pieces to add to it yet. Etched brass clock faces and weather vane plus white metal chimney pots. It's destined to be Havering Station on the new layout.

Hi Trevor,

Nice to see the red brick version,I'm just doing the large canopy double length and haven't decided on an actual station building yet.Your version looks like it might fit the bill though.

I'm not a complete idiot..some bits are missing.
