Everything was so small it kept sticking to me!

Lack of glue has now halted play, but I have 7 more to do in my bag of tricks!

Cheers Doc & London

First off, way to raise the bar! And thank you for making me feel lazy in my converts and now I have more work to do! :P

Second, as to the glue thing. What I do is have a small 'puddle' of glue on a scrap of plastic. Then I pick up the plastic piece to be glued with the point of an xacto and then dab the other end with glue and then apply the part to the correct spot. It works 90% of the time and saves my fingers some grief....

Cant wait to see this in paint!!!

Its the same method I use, but moving the car around in my hands is my bad habit!

No bar raising... I just want to see if I can get the same level of detail into a smaller model because they are cheaper! lol I dont mind spending a touch more on figures [or sculpting my own] if the cars are £1!

Cheers fella

***EDIT***

hobby frenzied... finished painting it already... grrr was going to enjoy it over 2 days, now I have to go to town for super glue and do another.

Nice customizing of the car Rusty looks really good considering your adhesive mishaps!

The rust painting is quite brilliant! My first thought was: "Uh, don´t touch that car or you will get tetanus for sure" ;)
