materix01 (1 year ago) #9773980There is a special type of plastic cement. The two main brands of plastic cement for plastic models are Mr Cement and Tamiya. Plastic cement kinda of melts the plastic together. I really like using Mr Cement Deluxe if I need to glue really large pieces but if I want small pieces, I will use Mr Cement S which is a thinner less messy cement that doesn't melt as much plastic and hence more forgiving. The Tamiya equivalent is called Tamiya Extra Thin Cement and works just as well.
If you only have regular Tamiya cement on hand, it works well if you're careful.


Great info. Thanks!!!

materix01 (1 year ago) #8697907Some plastic cement such as Tamiya extra thin is a lot easier and far less messy.

Drkvixn91 (2 years ago) #2674841If you're going to brave this many small, picky parts, I highly recommend having a small tube of super glue handy because I found a lot of pieces didn't want to stay in place.

ZoidsFanatic (1 year ago) #3464535Quick question. Would the accessories on the MK18 fit the SCAR? I wouldn't mind getting a few for the accessories (mostly the scope).
Well, the M4 Carbine they have released featured a Picatinny rail where you can place the attachments, and I think the FN SCAR-H also has the same railing system, iinm.
I believe whatever firearm which has this Picatinny rail (which most would do, since I think it's the standard rail system for most armies) would have compatible accessories with each other.
And yeah, the Barrett anti-materiel rifle also has this rail system, so yeah, you can place its sniper scope onto the SCAR-H, which kinda' makes it a SCAR-H SSR.

So, there you go - as long as these accessories are fitted on the same rail system (Picatinny in this case), there would be no problems with cross-compatibility..!

I concur. Got to use glue. Parts nippers help a lot too. Lot of fun though, but can be slightly scary to build.

I would pick up more if I ever get around to it.

Have to be ridiculously careful when popping the pieces out. One of the decorative attachments broke in half when I tried.
