Very good product, especially for joining long seams

 on May 28, 2017
By Caleb Nelson
Very good product, especially for joining long seams. The cement is applied with the applicator (a very nice feature by Tamiya) over the seam of the plastic parts you are attaching, and due to the capillary effect it seeps into the seam and subsequently bonds the two separate pieces into one through a chemical reaction. I have not tested the strength of the bond purposely, but nothing I’ve used this cement for has either fallen off or broken off. I do think that super glue is sometimes preferable based on what you’re attaching together, but I have to say this extra thin cement has replaced super glue in my hobby kit more so than anticipated.

great model cement

I have been using MEK as model cement for years and it works but this Tamiya cement works better. I’m not sure how since it’s most likely MEK too but it does. I love the stable square bottle and fine-tipped brush. All in all the best model cement I’ve ever used and though it’s way more expensive than a can of MEK, I think I’ll buy it again when I use it up.

Great Control

After using a Citadel glue bottle that requires constant fussing over and careful application, I noticed a lot of pros on YouTube using this instead. Excellent control especially with small pieces such as 40k miniatures, but also controlled coverage if you’re doing gunpla or kitbashing. A tip I learned was to hold two pieces together with one hand and then carefully spread this paint between the plastic joints, it seeps in and merges the plastic nicely.

My new favorite model glue

 on March 6, 2017
By Will Harris
Excellent product. You’ll basically never run out. Now be warned this is only a plastic glue and best used for tighter fit pieces, though it can be used on more opens spaces this is a little trickier. But once everything drys the hold it the best you could ask for. I love the applicator in the lid as well.

I broke a piece on a Gundam model I was building. I don’t have the time, equipment, or skill to paint the models, so I wouldn’t be able to cover up the damage that well, I just wanted to repair the piece, so I could finish the build. This cement worked so perfectly, you can’t even tell the piece was broken.

It will run into the fine crevices. I use this stuff three ways

This is a WOW. It will run into the fine crevices. I use this stuff three ways. 1) It will remove paint, so when gluing surfaces where paint has been applied, a bit of this will remove the paint allowing the plastics to adhere to one another. 2). Having assembled with regular cement, and after that has dried, I run this onto the joint. It runs into the cracks and makes the joint “permanent”. 3). when assembling tiny pieces, I put them together for a test fit. Rather than take them apart, add cement and putting them back together, I simply apply a dab of this to the joint. It runs down in and seals the deal. If you’re a semi-serious modeller, or better, this stuff is a must.

Quality Glue For Fine Work

 on April 1, 2017
By LovinMyGames
This stuff is awesome. Works extremely well. Drys pretty quickly. Even though I would let it sit for a good day before moving forward. This is the thin cement with a small brush meant for smaller areas. Does it have a strong odor. If your in a smaller space yes you will notice the odor. For me however the odor lets me know this stuff has the right amount of chemicals and it will work. It’s not some diluted, sub-par product. This stuff is the real deal. Just wear a mask or have a well ventilated area to use this stuff in though. I’m pretty sure I got a little high off of it LOL.

Tamiya highest quality

 on April 13, 2018

Tamiya makes the highest quality modeling products. This glue is ultra, water thin and works incredibly well on plastics. When joining you can either apply before a press fit, or join the parts to be bonded and then apply glue to the seam for an instant super strong bond.
