SMS Markgraf by LEGION 12 - ICM Models - 1/350 Scale - Plastic Model

Recommended Posts

Tamiya Extra Thin with the green cap. It's acetone based so it evaporates pretty fast. Hold parts in place, a quick swipe with your glue brush, count to 5 and it's bonded. Not super hard; should let it set up an hour or so. I generally have 3 kits going, so I can rotate through various steps in a session.


May want to rough up the mating surfaces even for CA glue.  That works on resin parts, too.

I use plastic specific glue for the kit parts from the spruces, anything else metal like is attached with CA. I like BSI insta-cure+ . No specific treatments whatsoever. I do, however, remove any paint from the surfaces which will be glued, but for the spot where I need to glue a brass piece on if that happens to be after painting. I try to get all brass on before priming, which, as you will have encountered also, is not always evident

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
