which glue for 1:300 planes?

Hi everyone, I don't know if this has been asked before, but I wanted to ask you some advice about which glue to use when building 1:300 scale paper aircrafts.


I've been using this one and this one for crafting small 3d model with regular 80/110gsm paper and they've always worked ok but they have some flaws: the first makes a lot of filaments and the second one sometime is hard to apply (especially with tiny parts).


Based on your experience which glues would you recommend for paper modelling?

Try using a PVA glue made for gluing wood - but not a general purpose PVA.

I do some woodworking and I generally use Titebond II and III do you think that would do the work?

theberto - I have looked up the specs on Titebond and it looks to me as if it is perfectly suitable.

One question - does it dry clear? This is important.

If it does, test it first and see how it does.

I usually spray my models with varnish first and it should be fine on varnished paper and held perfectly once dry.

I apply the glue by putting a blob on scrap and then using something with a point to apply or spread it. An old Number 11 blade also works fine as you can scoop up more if you have to. I then spread it along the tabs.

Let me know how ot goes!
