Scratchbuilding Questions

Post by darkwolf29a » Thu Mar 27, 2008 9:04 am

I did a test last night and found that superglue can, in fact, be used to bound foam core together. I was most excited.

Now, I'm on to bondo. I'm assuming I can use it, but I don't want to ruin the wings I spent a few hours on last night. So, I come to the experts... Can you use bondo to bridge the gap between two pieces of foamcore?

Also, I'm looking at Scupley and bits of brass tubing, for my ship's guns. I'm assuming that I don't want to bake the brass along with the Sculpey. So, what's the preferred method? Should I make the guns, remove the barrels and bake the sculpey? Or is there another, better, method?

Thanks. :)
