Bill G., Ray, Russ, Bill H. thanks.

Doesn't it bother you to build something to such a high degree of excellence and then leave it only partly visible? Is there no way to allow access later? -- Russ

Perception, cognition to me is a more and more interesting aspect in modeling. How realistic is a model one can take in his hands and look at from all sides? What got this to do with perception of the prototype? Which indiscreet views do we have in strangers' private rooms (as long as they don't want us to have them? I'm afraid this is getting more and more weird, but concerning cognition it seems interesting to me to limit access to rooms or items whose existence is known to the beholders. Well, maybe it's just my inability to delimit a topic. Lacking any interior picture serendipity and online investigations of comparable situations leads to what I think might have been there. What bothers me is the sheer amount of items to be built for the big shop windows and showroom. But whenever I thought something couldn't be done this was a fallacy. Time is my friend. Still.

I think I understand. It isn't the showing off but the building.
Bill H.

In other words.

Cheers,
Volker

What kind of Gorgilla Glue? Sounds like it was the original.

I have only used it a little and found in one application where i tried bonding styrene to metal (scuffed up) it didn't make a solid bond and was brittle. That was unexpected from what i'd read about the glue.

Do you think the "yogurt" you created could be used as a filler/putty for some projects? Will it cure as the acetone evaporates further?

Last night I was assembling a dozen window sashes for an East Broad Top coach that the Friends of the East Broad Top are doing heavy repairs (one to one modeling).  I used Gorilla Glue to bond the sashes.  Because I do not have enough bar clamps of the right size to do it in one batch, I had to do it in 3 batches.  Between batches I cleaned the brush with acetone to get the adhesive out of the bristles.  This morning I discovered the leftover acetone had turned into a cream colored solid about the texture of yogurt.  What other things can happen to Gorilla Glue that is unexpected?

Hopefully this will be bigger.  The difficulty in posting photos kills this forum for me.  Just too much work sizing them EXACTLY to such a small size.
