6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

MODELLING: White Rat's Advice on Glue!

Hi Everyone,

My friend White Rat, one of the greatest OGRE miniature modellers and collectors around, posted this good advice about a new (Or not so new... ) kind of glue.

As a side note, I think Tas knows White Rat whose real name is John Perchalski.

Another note on glues and superglues:

Loctite Super Glue Gel.

The stuff in the stupid-looking plastic bottle with squeeze ears that for years I never bought because I couldn't imagine paying money for what was clearly nothing more than a costly package to drive the price up instead of having more glue.

Then I used some at a friend's house to repair a mini.

This stuff comes out of the spout in a ROD about a millimeter across that doesn't even begin to flex under its own weight until it is a cm long.

It's THICK. It's MUCH thicker than any of the other super-glue gels including the hobbyist 'super thick' special gels. I now use it anywhere I need to stick a piece that isn't easily supportable while it dries, and it HOLDS.

GOOD stuff. Worth the extra forty cents.
