Thanks for the tip on the King Tiger. I'd like to have a nice, quick Stuart, but never wanted a King Tiger, so I'm safe there.

plastruct weld on Tamiya

I can't find any Tamiya liquid in town and have a Tamiya kit with some broken parts. Will the Plastruct liquid work and will it be strong enough?

Haven't done any plastic in decades.
