Model Glue is another basic tool. Many of us still use the old standby, Testors tube glue. But there are many other choices today. The Testors glue melts the styrene plastic, and when doing this, bonds them together as one. Almost like welding.

If you build kits made from resin, or vinyl, or you're using metals, such as brass and white metal, then you need a glue like Zap-A-Gap or Super Glue, which is a CA ( Cyanoacrylate) glue, and makes a bonding connection between two objects (without melting them).

Some glues are thin, like water, which will run into thin seams by capillary action. This fills them and bonds the gaps.

Other glues are thicker, like a gel, and are easier to keep where you want them, rather than run down your model or overflow onto painted sufaces.

Many modelers have their favorites when it comes to hobby glues. Most of them are here. If you get a new glue to try, always experiment with it on some old model parts first to see how it works, and how it flows.

Be safe. Always keep a paper towel or cloth handy whenever using glues to wipe away excess, and to keep it off your hands and clothes.


Modeling glues of many types, hopefully your favorites are here.

Every modeleing seems to have their own brand they like, so you may want to try several to see which one works for your model and hobby projects.

A note on CA Glues - these glues will bond skin together, or just about anything else, so they should not be used around children without adult supervision. Be safe.

The regular CA glues are thin, and run like water. When used on a model, they can fill gaps (by capillary action) or used to glue parts together. Once dry, they tend to almost invisible when used sparingly.

The GEL CA glues are thicker. The advantage to this type of glue is that it stays where you put it rather than running. This can be especially useful on painted model parts where you don't want the glue to run down a painted surface, or get out of control.

CA glue can be used to fill holes and gaps, and sanded and shot with primer with no issues (at least, none that I have ever encountered). They are especially needed on multi-material model kits, which have parts made of vinyl, resin, metal and more.
