Too thick/heavy OOB (out of bottle) and yellows with age.  Thinned at least 50/50 with distilled water (preferred due to the impurities in tap water) it is fine.  I really prefer a white alipathic, also thinned.

Thinning to 40/60 (glue/water) or even a bit thinner is great for attaching tissue and sealing the joins of tissue when the paper is applied with glue-stick.

I'd be interested to learn your opinions on the use of Titebond Original for model building.  I've seen several references to it in posts here but nothing with any details about advantages/disadvantages of this glue.

Thanks for your comments.

p.s.  I've been using it for years making custom furniture and can vouch for it's strength.  But I know that's not the only criteria we need to consider.
