Has anyone tried this product? I have been using aliphatic type PVA for some time and been very pleased with it, but my current supply which is from the Jim Perkins (JP) range is about to run out . The advantage of the Gorilla brand is that it is about 50% cheaper and more readily available i.e. it is stocked by my local Srewfix.

Good stuff, reasonable waterproof. Very strong. Don’t hesitate!

Its not alphabetic of course, and as I have never used alphabetic glue I could not advise on the difference.

Glue choice often gets different answers, it's not just a matter of how good a glue is, but how comfortable you are working with it. Both Gorilla glue and aliphatic resin glues are popular choices, and with good reason, they both work well. I can only say that you should get some and try it, if it suits your way of working and whatever woods etc you use that's great. Most of us use a range of glues anyway, according to which bit of the model we are working on.

Among my modeling mates, they use everything from cyanno, to cheap shop pva and I've never seen a model fall apart yet.

I use the blue Evo Stick, it works out cheaper than Gorilla, easy to work & is paintable. Evo Stick blue

Chas has it. Almost anything is fair game on wood especially. Ashley

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
