this is from the site's advertiment :

Solvent-type cement uses capillary action to weld styrene, acrylic, butyrate and ABS plastic. To apply, place the parts together and then put a drop on the seam. Hold for 15 seconds. In that amount of time, SAME STUFF bonds and starts to cure. This method is far superior to thicker plastic cement which is messy, harder to control and can damage expensive model kits.

Second product :

Solvent-type cement uses capillary action to weld styrene, acrylic, butyrate and ABS plastic. To apply, place the parts together and then put a drop on the seam with the included Touch-N-Flow applicator. Hold for 15 seconds. In that amount of time, SAME STUFF bonds and starts to cure. This method is far superior to thicker plastic cement which is messy, harder to control and can damage expensive model kits. Set includes 4 oz. of SAME STUFF plus the Touch-N-Flow applicator described below.

The Touch-N-Flow Applicator lets you apply just the amount of liquid plastic cement, glue or C/A accelerator you need. How it works: Capillary action draws liquid into the glass tube. Touching the micro-tip to the joint causes the liquid to flow from the tube. Application is easily controlled and precisely positioned.

This stuff works great. I like to paint the stuff on the parts to be glued(bonding surfaces) Let is sit for 10 seconds, and then push the parts together and hold for a few seconds.

Thanks YHR what you think would it be satesfied to use on the superstructure of my jagdtiger, am in search for a gleu wich melds the plastic together would this do the job?
I have reinforced the superstructure but the gleus i use don't melt it together , i have to be shore i won't come loose when using, the test were satesfied but you never can make it strong enough i think ...

Karel, I've never used that but I have and am using these....

This one is formulated exactly as Pro-weld. Micromarks "SameStuff" says it's like proweld, although it doesn't show the composition for comparison....but it's priced exactly like Pro Weld. I'd stick with Pro-weld or any of the two Plastruct brands.....stay away from Plastructs' Weldene, it's only for styrene and the hold isn't that strong.

Have you ever used cement solvent before?
If you never have, then you need to know that you don't use it the same as cement glue.

not realy only revell's modelcement, normaly i uses Bison Industial Second gleu, for all my RCTanks it is sayesfied but i think the superstructure coud need a strong gleu melting the plastic parts together for the jagdtiger i try your one, it modelfair in the club this weekend i go see what these guy's sell i think i buy them both plastruck and micro mark if i find them ...

I've used Zapp gleus and Olba second gleu but none of these could compare with the strenght Bison Industriel Supergleu gives, but a melting one would add more strenght to it, the 128mm alu canon weight almost 300gr would need a strong undersurface to hang in , withstand collisions while riding be sure i made it strong

Servoblast what you used for the superstructure of your jagdtiger

Yep,

This stuff works great. However I would reinforce the seams on the inside. This stuff is also great (with careful use) to make clear plastic display cases.

It comes in a number of brand names. Be sure you do not leave the bottle open too long, as it evaporates in no time.

I like to usecalligraphypens or syringes to apply the solvent.....depending on the seams. I got a bit lazy on my tam Pershing and just used the applicator brush that comes in the bottle. Waste a lot more this way....but using a syringe orcalligraphypen is too time consuming when most of the pieces are so large. Also, a lot of the seams on the kit are near seamless when pressed together, the bonds don't turn out so well so I would have topurposelyallow a micro gap to allow the solvent to flow between the seam and carefully press them together without having any of the soft plasticseepout. Cement solvent is the best, none of that stringy cement strands or waiting forever for parts to hold.

Hey Chief,
Were you trying to adhere two different types of plastics? It only works or works best when it's same on same, unlike cement glue. I had questions whether it would work on a HL tank, but when I snapped the back panel of my Tiger I in two (just by taking it off) tried it and it did very well. Of course like any mending job, I still needed to add support over the mend. Also used it to attach the two halves of my Tamiya Pershing together.....kind of wish I hadn't cause now I have to cut into it to get them apart now that I need to add some things after the fact.
