Diecast whacking
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, November 29, 2003 5:05 PM
I'm new to Scale Auto Online, I've collected the magazine for many years. I have a terrible urge to start whacking on a couple Danbury cars, but I want some advice on what type of glue and filler to use....anyone have experience with this procedure, or should I forget it?

First off I would like to Sign - Welcome you to the community. We have well over 1000 members now, so there is a good chance someone here has hacked a few diecast models and would love to give some advice. I've been thinking about doing the same thing so, I'll be sure to check back on this thread often. Good luck

hello pageje, welcome to the forums, glad to have you! as for the diecast cars go, i have done some things to the cheaper models, i cant see touching those danbury models with the price of some of them(ouch) the ones i messed with , i used my regular super glue, and if you plan on doing body work with putty, be sure to remove the factory paint so it will stick well,i use squadron green putty, havent had any problems, but i really havent used alot of it on diecast either? hope this helpsThumbs UpThumbs UpSign - Welcome

Pretty much the same as working with plastic, just use super glue or epoxy to bond the pieces and I would suggest using one of the catalyzed putties like Eurosoft. That Squadron green stuff will shrink, use the catalyzed putty and you'll be much happier.

The Eurosoft putty can be found at any good Auto Paint store or ask a local Body Shop where they get their supplies if you can't find it.
