Default GW Plastic Glue...?

I apologise if this topic has been covered somewhere else already...

Does anyone else find GW's Thick Plastic Glue an absolute pain in the arse to work with??

I find it takes ages to dry and you have to hold the pieces in place for ages, it also seems nto to melt the plastic together as well as the old one GW used to do and compared to other polycements.

Which plastic glues/polycements do other people find work best?

Try and steer clear of any of GWs modelling supplies, like their glues, basing materials or tools. They charge a ridiculously high mark up on stuff you can buy online or in your local hardware or modelling store for quite reasonable prices.

I use Revell contacta professional for plastics. It has a very good needle applicator that makes it far easier to use and saves all the wastage you get with a normal tube.

I think its because they have different cats pissing in the bottles, so the quality varies quite allot

I used GW plastic glue when I first started in the hobby. After a week of trying everything to get it right I tossed it in the trash and now use Humbrol and I have never had a problem with it.

Is the Revell glue an overseas (non US) item? For the life of me I cant find it here. Cant even find it on Amazon. Currently I use Loctite that is a gel and has a precise applicator. I love the glue, works perfectly. But would like to try the Revell.
