Finally, a question that gets to the meat of who we all really are. Jamie was pissed, and when Jamie gets pissed, he doesn’t show it much in his voice or his manner, instead his head turns bright red. If your cars paintwork is in poor condition however and needs to be polished with a heavy abrasive polish it is advisable that this be undertaken no more than twice a year as you may run the risk of damaging the finish by removing to much material from the surface. Model airplane glue is a thickened type of plastic weld bond, but it also comes in a much wetter form used for making things like acrylic boxes. Working on a commercial for Jamie back in the mid-90s, I spent a week making brass corners and filigree for an incredible glossy lacquered box that my colleague Lauren built out of hardwood. That will speed up your repair time and make sure you have the right part when you get back to your RV. A: It was actually easy to incorporate all of their voices into this book because the interviews that I did with them are simply extensions of the conversations I have with them as friends and colleagues.
You have to be vigilant with the entire surface of the object to which you are applying it. They can be amazing when you’re doing quick and dirty model work, especially in films and commercials; you just have to remember that solvent-based CA kickers can often have a deleterious effect on paint jobs and on clear plastics (beware of kicker and polycarbonate!). Lorne Peterson, one of the original model makers on Star Wars and an old friend, was the one who discovered CA glue as an Eastman Kodak product and introduced it to the ILM model shop. One product is used to seal the finish and the other is used as a quick detailer until the next time you have to fully seal or coat the finish. I have known plenty of model makers over the years who can’t abide the smell of solvent kicker and only use baking soda. It was originally formulated as emergency battlefield sutures during the Vietnam War and I know model makers who swear by CA glue for stitch-worthy cuts (I’ve never tried it). Government documents were sealed with red tape and a wax seal protecting them from people who shouldn’t read them.
For me, obsession is the beginning of every project and is the gravity of making, and for people who read this book, I want their hands to itch to get building. I tend to use styrene and acrylic mostly in my shop, so my glue of choice is Weld-on 3. For styrene scratch building or putting small pieces of plastic sheet together, there’s nothing better than a bit of Weld-on 3 and a brush. And as you press that sticky label on the last jar there comes a sense of doing something a bit ‘grown up’. Sprinkling a little bit on glue you’ve laid down also makes it immensely stronger. Use very little detergent and skip the fabric softener, which will coat the fibers and inhibit microfiber’s qualities. Little known fact: baking soda is also an excellent accelerator for CA glues. Also a thermoset adhesive, epoxy putty is a big family of glues that can join things but can also be used as a maker material in its own right. Take the two parts, knead them until you have created a third color and can’t see either of the original colors, and then put the putty to use. It is, the only way we have any influence at all on our lives and futures.
Q: This book is, in many ways, immensely practical, from a taxonomy of glue to full-page reproductions of your own project sketches. I have glued hero props to my own hand with super-thin glue more times than I care to admit. Work above a fire-proof surface and have some water near by.
