What base does it have (water, aromatic solvent, catalytic)?  Elmer's is practically unobtanium over here, so I'll have to wait till my buddy's next trip to Trumpland Smiley Smiley.

Have not seen this type of glue yet. I will have to pick some up and try it.
I do the same when I am building. I do double glue my joints when using wood glue or a cut down acitone glue. Building is relaxing.

Neoflight had mention this glue in latest build...
I have double glued in the past but very rarely. If it's something I need immediate hold, I'll use cyanoacrylate but try to avoid on joints that will need contouring. Like most, I find it annoying and the odour is a bit off but it does have its uses. For joints that will need sanding, can accept slow cure or I feel will need to bear strain or torque I'll use aliphatic resin glue. I've recently found a unique glue by Elmer's called "Elmer's Ultimate Glue" I like to use on high torque/weight bearing joints. I has a slight measure of elasticity but more rigid than Elmer's white glue. It is easily pruned or shaped with a pen knife or thin razor and sands/files well.
One thing I do is allocate a measurable amount of time shaping and fitting the joints. I will spend anywhere from a couple to 15min getting a proper fit. Building is relaxing for me and I don't mind taking it slow. It doesn't always mean I'll meet with success but at least I'm relaxed when I approach failure.
Regards, Neo
