It's worth it to use for joining sheets because the joint sands just like balsa. You will see the join but not feel it. DUCO and Sigment dry a little 'harder' so take a little more effort to sand smooth in this application so from a time is money standpoint it's worth it! I never had as much luck with aliphatics joining sheets, either. I can't stand CA adhesives. They make my nose runny (allergy).

I'd heard that that the company had gone to Canada after moving out of it's long-time Massachusetts facility and North to New Hampshire for a few years.

That's a lot of $$.. but I'd spend it. Just use it in key-locations.. and the tube should last you a long time. I'm not sure what the shelf-life is.. but I've had a full plastic tube for over 15 years.. and it's still good. I'm still using-up some from a metal tube that's over 25 years old.

Is Ambroid better than Testors in the brown tube? I used to use Ambroid, but don't really remember.

I used a lot of aliphatic on my Twister, including the sheeting with a paint brush. It did fine for me, but I did learn one thing. If I cut sheeting to fit perfectly, then pre-glue them, they swell and didn't fit as well.

Shipping across the border & Flammable? Probably, right?

I guess if they combine shipping and you bulk up it might not be too bad. I have to admit I have never used it, but interested to try. That eBay price is a little expensive just to try out. Also, did I read here on CEF or somewhere else that the recipe changed?

One other thing - I noticed the eBay store name is Sunward. Hmmm, seems like after the move to the Great White North it should be Poleward, or maybe Snowward.

Ambroid the good and the bad

Post  706jim on Sun Mar 06, 2016 4:42 pm

$8.00 is expensive, but a tube of this stuff should last a long time. I loved the smell of this Ambroid (and made it to 66.....). I found that it sublimes away on an older model so can't be that strong long term.

But it is soft, sands well and .....smells great!

I had Guillows Super Cub 95 powered by a Pee Wee 0.020. I could get about 5 or 6 flights out of it before the wing to fuselage joint would break. I would use a hypodermic needle to inject Ambroid glue through the covering into the failed joint and it would be good to fly the next day.

Maybe there's something to be said about gluing something and having to WAIT overnight to see how things turned out!
