I'm currently in process of scratchbuilding my first pack and started of using styrene, which is also the first time I've ever used it. I've learned alot with trial and error and am on a pretty decent pace, until i ran out of plastic.
After looking up other's styrene scratch builds (of which I am completely blown away and using methods from several of you - thanks in advance!) it was recommended I pick up some polystyrene. I did and got a pretty decent size for about 1/3 the cost of sheets from my local hobby shop.
With the new plastic i did run into a problem tho: I'm using testors 3502 and 3501 cements but the test pieces don't seem to have the same holding power as the modeling styrene and come apart at the glue seams.
Is there a different cement I should be using?
thanks again for any advice
