sp,
    I took a look on the link Frank sent you and they refer to MicroScale "Metal Foil Adhesive".

https://www.google.com/search?source=univ&tbm=isch&q=Microscale&client=firefox-b-d&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiKzqLtnuHr

   Scroll down about half way and you'll find it.

   I've never used it but this is probably what you are looking for.
Cheers,
Lance

Stephen, follow along by all means. Scratch building often requires an audience to whine to :-)

Have  you had any experience with Small Stuff? They mention a kind of foil glue. Do you know anything about it?

I use the MicroScale adhesive all the time, for fixing foil onto models needing a bare metal finish.

The stuff looks like white glue but handles differently. It only become sticky when it dries, and you rub the foil down hard to make a solid bond. Drying takes about a quarter hour.

It is not a water glue, and I find that CA accelerator cleans it up quick and brisk, using a bit of paper towel of a cotton bud.

I suppose putting a bit in a locator hole and letting it dry would work well enough for the purpose here. I've never tried using it for anything but its stated purpose.

Nice project, I'll definitely follow this one. I built and corrected the eastern Express (?) kit a few years back for the Nieuport group build on here.
I always use ca for small stuff engines and have never had any issues with it.

I am like Ian, I use CA for Small Stuff engines and it works very well indeed.

I write again: they are top notch kits and well worth the money. They can be mounted as models in their own right IMHO.

Good to hear about using CA on the Small Stuff kits.

I want to thank everyone who showed  interest and offered support, y'all really have me enthused about this project. Unfortunately I am unable to pursue it or any other for a while. My back has totally gone out on me. I can barely sit at the computer to keep up on the Forum. Actually sitting at the bench and accomplishing anything isn't in the cards right now.

I am awaiting a fresh MRI to wave under the doctor's nose and see what he says, so until then I have to self medicate and wait. No fun at all. It may be a while, but I will be doing the Nie IV

Sorry to hear about your back, Steve.  Here's hoping your back on the mend soon and back on this extraordinary project.
Cheers,
Bud

You have my total sympathy concerning the back problem Steve. As a fellow sufferer I can imagine how you are feeling (but not for too long because it hurts too much). Totally frustrating I know - and very little you can do about it but wait.

I sincerely hope that it gets better soon and that you do not have to suffer too much. The Nieuport can wait - and so can we because it will be a gem when you do get back to it.

Stephen.

Thanks Bud and Stephen. It is a long wait to get this fixed. Too much discomfort to concentrate on a model. It is a matter of waiting until I get a surgery date. So not looking forward. Y'all keep posting your progress, it greatly helps

Sorry to hear that sp,

I had an MRI recently on my back - back pain ain’t fun!

All the best,

  Hang in there SP, and I hope a solution surfaces quickly! I know your pain, in fact after "rolling" out of bed this morning I told the "Good Wife' I figured I've got less then a year of mobility left at this rate. I suppose our age (I'm including Stephen if I may) has a bit to do with it but at least we've got a great hobby to distract us from the problem at times. A good (Reference?) book and a a stiff whisky is the preferred solution here, rest up and keep us informed of developments.
Cheers,
Lance

Thanks Terri and Lance.
I had the MRI today. Now another week to wait to see the Dr,     still too uncomfortable to work on a model.

Saw the doc today. No surgery indicated :-)  Injections of steroids should stop the pain. Downside is a month's wait for the procedure. Did get a scrip to help until then. Looking forward to getting back to the bench.
