Scale modeling often requires the precise, controlled application of CA glue at specific points in oir models.
That can be done with cocktail sticks, but this has the drawback of the wood absorbing part of the glue and starting the drying process. A metal tool is much more beneficial, and some resort to makeshift tools.
These are not always optimal and they deteriorate quickly.
What you need if you are in this situation is a good set of CA applicators. Made of PE-like metal, they include a slit at the front so you can load them with glue and start applying on your model, letting you be super precise. They also come in different shapes so you can adapt to any contours.
And, if some CA glue dries on the tip, just "clean" it with fire, and you're done!
We have to prepare each shipment individually as they are ordered, so allow us 3-4 weeks for it to arrive in the USA/Canada (to be safe) and 3-6 weeks rest of the world, though they are usually delivered much faster.
