    Can UHU Plast replace tamiya cement?

    Hi!

    I want to start gunpla building!! I've been watching a lot of videos to get a sense of what I want to do with my models. I want to use as few materias as possible, but glue is definitely somehting I want to buy. Almost universally all videos that I've seen use Tamiya Cement as glue Thing is I live in Argentina and getting a hold of that stuff is pretty much impossible (customs thing). What I can get my hands on is this:

    Can anyone tell me if this adhesive will work with gunpla kits?

    Thanks!!

    That should work. Best thing to do would be buy it and try it out on 2 junk parts, like old runners.

    Thanks it's good to know. I've found a hobby shop in my hometown that apparently sells Tamiya stuff as well. I go into it and see what I can buy. But it's good to know that I have an alternative.
