    Has anyone tried the Flamingo glue yet from Northeastern ?

    I saw the glue at the Css-07 show but haven't tried it yet. I'm curious myself if anyone has used it and for what applications it works best.

      Hi Tony:

      I bought a bottle at CSS07 and when I get The Army navy Store to test fit I will try it out ok.

        Guys, the guy at the show said it is basically white elmers glue but you were paying for the tip applicators. Pat

          Thanks for the info. I normally buy my white glue in gallon bottles white is the best price per drop around.

            i recieved my pick glue today, this is not elmers, this is great, sets very strong, and fast, cleans up nice as well, the tips work great, i am gluing HO 2x4 and i didnt make a mess. the tips clog a bit, i use a needle to clean them, i recommend it.

              Flamingo Glue is good stuff! I bought some at the Convention and have been using it ever since. The applicator tip allows me to lay down a bead of glue thinner than a pencil line. It is also a good gap and crack filler if you're a sloppy model builder like me.

                Hey guys-

                I too bought some of the "pink stuff" at the convention. Put together all of Kendalls with it. Outstanding bonding, just as good as Canopy glue. Love the applicator, granted it clogs, but using a needle as a cap keeps it flowing. The ONE negative I would say is when it dries, you have a pink residue. No problems with wiping it off the wood then the stain taking to it.

                I think overall its a wonderful addition to many other glues that are available out there. I suggest everyone give it a try! If anything, you' ll have a handy reusable applicator when you run out.

                  Howdy Dave,

                  If you are "the" Dave Frary (of course your family might think so regardless) and you call yourself sloppy, I'ld hate to think what kind of model builder I am!!
                  Look out for #1, but don\'t step in #2!

                    Hi All,
                    I am modifying a Z scale shell, it is die cast metal. I am also using parts made of aluminum and brass.
                    What adhesive do you use to bond die cast metal to die cast metal and die cast metal to aluminum and brass.
                    Thanks for your input,
                    Scott

                        If gluing the parts together is the only option I'd also go with JB Weld. At the very least carefully clean and slightly roughen the surfaces, but where possible it would be better to reinforce with a mechanical connection like screws or pins.
                        I tried several glues (JB Weld, a couple epoxies, several superglues -including some with rubber, Gorilla glue and adhesive caulk) to stick styrene to a zinc frame on a Mantua steam engine. It was not a structural connection. None of the glues held very well. I wound up using 3M Scotch 9472LE adhesive transfer tape which did work BUT, as said before, it is not a structural connection.

                          Martin and Bill,

                          Thanks for taking the time to respond. I was thinking JB Weld, but I wanted to see what others with more experience preferred.
                          I found Karl O's thread, very informative.
