Great video as always. What is the catalyst that you use?

Question from a modelling newbie, if you are supergluing the piece together, why the pin?

Your not supergluing the piece together you are gluing the pin in the hole.

From what I see, he puts super glue in the hole of the arm, the puts the pin in, then puts super glue into the hole on the torso, then attaches the arm (via pin) to the torso. follow up until this point. The last step he dropped super glue into the joint after the arm was on, am I missing something or wouldn't that just glue the arm to the torso? Sorry if I'm missing something, but I just don't understand and would like to.

Oh, and just so I can make sure I'm getting the purpose correct, the pin is so that you can move the arm into different positions?

The purpose of the pin is to strengthen an otherwise fragile joint. This is usually done to large metal models, where the heavier pieces make it far more likely that parts will fall off due to their weight. The pin gives support to the separate parts, and also gives the glue more surfaces to stick to.

Hope that helps!

Great tutorial, the tip with the paint for alignment is very helpful.

2 things though: what is a catalyst and what size wire do you use? Right now I'm using a small paperclip that I've cut up.
