Where can you buy the Ambroid Proweld?  I'm curious too now.  If its better and cheaper than Tamiya, thats great!  Shipping costs kill me when I get Tamiya.

I apologize if I made a mistake; Ive already scanned those websites linked there, did a google product search, checked ebay and amazon.  What I did find was 5$ for 2oz.  Doesnt sound like much of a deal.

OR, if you were suggesting I ask there, then I'm sorry, I asked here because it was the only place I've seen mentioning that particular glue.

However, I did stumble across another variety on Hobbylink that was also mentioned here that I can try.

No, no, right place to ask was here. Its just nice to know you had searched first. :D

And actually $5 is what I pay for 2oz. bottle at my LHS. Its a SUPER thin chemical that melts the plastic to bond it together. The little bottle goes a long way with commercial plastic kits. If you're scratch building buy 3 bottles.

Hi guys,
I guess the "Glue Questions and Tips" subject seem like the right place for my question:
I'm making a few mods on the ertl Millenium Falcon. One of these mods requires adding brass rods for plumbing. I know some of you guys already done that but, after following and ready about some of your builds, I didn't read anything on what your using to glue/attach/bond brass rods on plastic.
CA perhaps?
Thanks for your help and cheers all!
What a piece of junk!

CA should work fine - you want to make sure the brass is clean, and maybe rough up the surface of the brass with some steel wool, but that should do it.

I always use two kinds liquid and gel CA. I prefer gel but sometimes it's better to use liquid CA.
