Hi Mojo

I've never heard of Gorilla glue... I don't think it's available in the UK. Let us all know what it's like - it may be worth trying to track down. The "foaming" bit on their site sounds a bit scary...

All the best

I wouldn't use as a styrene glue, but it proabably has 1,000,000 other applications in the hobby.

I've used it it works well on wood. It will foam if you use to much. But, if you glue something with it don't plan on taking it apart, EVER. It is super strong stuff. I bought mine at Lowes Home Center. I would'nt use it on a model, unless it was wood and then that would be over kill. Probably would work well for Dio's:-H

Yeah, I have seen this stuff at my local Home Depot and the name caught my attention. I might give it a try for those larger projects.

I wouldn't try it on Plastic...... I does work Great on wood. It foams way too much for use w/ plastic. It would work on a Diorama base. BE sure to use pleanty of clamps if you use Gorrila Glue!!!!!
