Mitre FFFFast by Ever Build
I have written in earlier blog entries how I use Superglue and Accelerator to build models and attach miniatures. In the past I have used a dual pack of Superglue and accelerator from Howdens (a builders merchants in the UK), however for the last year I have been using Mitre FFFFast from Ever Build, which is also a two part glue and accelerator (see below) which I feel works better.
The Glue which is a Cyanoacrylate is not labeled as Superglue, but acts in exactly the same way as other Superglues (or SG's) I have used and can be used with or without the the aerosol activator to form very strong and complete bonds. The activator will work with other SG's. I tend to buy lots of small bottles of cheap SG at £1.00 a bottle and use the more expensive SG's for special or specific jobs.
The instructions are very comprehensive and with a 500g bottle of SG and a 200ml can of activator this pack will last for some time.
I have no hesitations at all in recommending this product for model makers. It is pretty obvious from the photo - but for completeness, the pack cost £8.99.
The labeling states that Mitre FFFFast will bond MDF, Wood, Chipboard, Rubber, Metals, Most Plastics, Perspex, ceramics and much more. For more information;
Everbuild Building Products Ltd, Site 41, Knowsthorpe Way, Green Cross Industrial Est. Leeds LS9 0SW.
I would also point out that the same product is available from e-bay sellers at a wide variety of prices!
