Scale Need info on glue supplies for Balsa USA 1/3 scale Super Cub

Discussion in 'Giant / Scale Scratch and Kit Build Threads' started by Dave1953, Dec 17, 2018.

   
  1. I just got my 1/3 scale Balsa USA SC kit today. This will be my first giant scale build and the 1st build for me in about 25 years. Is it best to go with Balsa USA house brand glue or should I consider a generic brand that may be just as good if not better and a lot cheaper? Also, Appx. how much do I need for the build of the thin / thick (1 ounce or 2 oz. bottles) and do I need the Q shot accelerator that they sell? In addition, do I need other glue related supplies? I know it is probably impossible to order everything I need in one order but I would like to get the bulk of the supplies up front if I could. Any info appreciated as I am ready to build. I'm 65 and racing the clock anyway!

    Oh man, I love glue. One each 2oz bottle of thin and medium ca glue, 4 - 8oz of Titebond or Gorilla wood glue, 5 and 30 minute epoxy, small bottle of polyurethane (Gorilla glue) should do you.

    Yes on ca accelerator.

  4. Is this the Balsa House glue or something else. I wouldn't think they sell Gorilla glue. You say 4 to 8 oz bottle of Titebond or Gorilla glue and small bottle of polyurethane Gorilla glue, is this right?

    Either is good for wood glue.

    The original or the new white Gorilla Glue is handy to have.

  7. Gotcha, thanks
     
  8. Can this one glue be used for the whole build or does it require more than 1?

  9. Stay away from CA as much as possible. Laser cut puts don't bond well with CA. Probably because of the 'burn' area. I use Titebond original and 5 min and 60 min epoxy.
