I picked a couple of card model kits while I was vacationing in Germany last month ( 4 old German townhouse buildings - 1/160 scale - and King Ludwig 2nd Newschwanstein castle - 1/250 scale). and was wondering what is the best type of glue for this type of modeling? The paper for the card models is kind of glossy, so it's got to be something that will hold well over time.
Here's what I have in my stash of adhesives: Elmer's glue sticks, CA glue, rubber and contact cement, double sticky Scotch and transparent (Magic type) tape.
I'll be posting the little houses first next week. The castle will take a little longer, it has 11.5 pages of cutouts, and it is a level3 model - supposed to be very difficult. This is my first attempt at card modeling, so I will take my time doing the castle (at 20.90 euros or $28.60US, I don't want to mess it up).
I also downloaded 5 NASCAR racers a few months back and will start working on them in month or so. Taking a rest from plastics.
Many thanks in advance,
