    I don't know if this stuff's ever been mentioned before on our boards, but I have to throw it out here again if so.

    It's called Plastic Fusion, and it's made by the Super Glue company. It sells for about 4-5 bucks at home depot, sears hardware, or lowes.

    It's incredible; Plastic Fusion Adhesive automatically dispense into equal parts with one push. Ready to mix and apply. A 2-part methyl methacrylate system that is strong, wateproof, and flexible when cured. 8 minutes positioning time for parts and can be handled in 15 minutes.

    This stuff literally BONDS plastic to plastic. You can tell a good apoxy by if it heats up or not when drying. The best part about it - is it's flexible, and easily cutable by x-acto knife, though VERY strong and durable.

    Anyway, I highly recommend this to any kitbasher out there.

    Looks like good stuff, is it just a really strong glue? Seems kinda odd to want something to be flexible though, well no I guess not, just depends on the application.

    About time someone did a easily-available 2-part mix epoxy specifically for plastic.

    The whole epoxy-family is the customiser's best friend, and I agree, you know it's working when it BURNS!

    Going to have to check this stuff out!

    it's amazing, combining this with precise cut styrene, and since the original post, I've completely fixed up both knee joint areas so the lower legs snap on without ANY space remaining. it's got a very light slight ply to it, like a softer plastic, but not at all like rubber.

    Sounds exactly like the stuff I got from my hobby shop yesterday, it was $4 and it says you hold the two pieces together and it actually melts the plastic together making the styrene permanently bonded. I am hoping it is as good as this stuff.

    i just picked up 2 more of these. they're 3.97 at home depot. kouri, i wouldn't touch krazy glue with a ten foot pole, it snaps off if any force is on the plastic.

    Awesome. Thanks for the tip. I've gotta get some of that - I'm tired of re-gluing things after using rubber cement to repair them.

    How is it on metal? If anything, I'd probably end up using it to fix up balljoints. =/

    I also use this. Crazy glue won't flex but snap off... better be flexible and durable.
    I also use hot glue sticks...very cheap and is surprisingly tuff and the good part is...if you mess up just soak the part in hot water and you'll be able to restart again. Using epoxy glue won't give you much of a second chance and once cured, it won't even wash out using acetone or lacque thinner so you better clean any remaining glue while it's still liquid.
    That said, it is one of the top glue available...but you gotta be careful using it.

    Last question! =O

    No chance of hurting the plastic right? I just snagged an Animated Prime, and he's missing a lot of the glue the factory should've given him. I dun want to mess up a figure I shouldn't even have yet. ^^;
