Mixed results so far. Quick drying, much like Testors. After assembling the box fuselage, I had several pieces come unglued through normal handling. Likely that this wouldn't have happened if another type of glue had been used (CA or SIG).

At this point, it performs much like the Testors model cement but may be a little stronger. Haven't tried thinning it and using double gluing.

I may end up using it for where I want a quick bond in areas that would have minimum stress.

I mostly use UHU HART balsa glue.
I find it excellent.

Always looking for a different type of adhesive but always seem to go back to my trusted thinned white glue and thin CA for fuselages. Looking forward to your work and analysis.

UHU Liquid Glue

I saw this on Ebay and gave it a try. Took forever to arrive from England, but may be quicker from Amazon.

This is sold as a balsa glue. It looks a lot like a tube of Testors but the similarity seems to end there. I'm currently using it to build a box fuselage using 1/16" stringers, and it is working out well. Very quick drying and seems to hold well. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Perhaps is a good candidate for those who like to thin other similar types of glue (Duco, etc).
