Guys just thought I mention something about glues. Look in the phone book for plastic suppliers, they sell weldon for styrene by the pint. Works as fast as Tenax(sp) or the other hot liquid glues. It's not the same weldon you by in hobby shop I believe is what the lady told me. Last time I bought 2 pints had haven't had to buy glue in a few years. I just keep the cans in an old coffee can to reduce loss by evaporation. I just use and old testors bottle to hold what I need. Here's a tip, when you're done using one of the "fast" liquid glues turn the bottle upside down for a seconfd or two to help seal the cap to reduce loss that evaporates through the seal.

Also a lot of plastic suppliers sell scrap by the bucket. So if you need some platic for scratch building there you go.

Happy modeling, :-)
