    Synthetic Rubber Cement?

    As I build my Tiger 1, the Tamiya instructions say to use Synthetic Rubber Cement.

    What is this? Is that Shoe Goo? Can someone tell me a brand name product found here in the US?

    TIA!

    Hmmm , try poly styrene cement as an option . It melts the plastic together. Haven't built a tamiya tank so not 100% sure. Works on heng long.!!

    RE: Synthetic Rubber Cement?

    The tamiya instructions specifies like 3 different cements. Standard polystyrene type, then a cryo type then the "SRC"... So, I'm thinking its different than one drop or the standard "testors" glue....

    RE: Synthetic Rubber Cement?

    Hi AlphaAuriga...you're right it is different. Synthetic rubber glue is used to glue disimilar materials together i.e. metal to plastic.
    On my Sherman I used it wherever Tamiya suggest and it worked fine i.e. Bogie assemblies, Oil reservoirs etc.
    Here in England I bought the SRC in B&Q, it's a huge DIY store. It was in the adhesives section where you would find Loctite products, packaged in a tube and is clear in colour.

    Hope this helps.

    I use Elmer's rubber cement. You'll find it an an office supply store or in the office supply section of a store. Not at a hobby shop. The reason its used is that it allows for a removal of the part you're installing.

    You can also use the thread locker supplied with the kit. it works well as a cement on parts that need to be able to be taken apart at a future point.

    In the case of the Tamiya Tiger it's used to mate the braided feifel intake hoses to their plastic fittings.
    I used rubberized contact cement.

    I also use Elmer's rubber cement. They also sell it in Home Depot and Lowe's.
