what is a good choice of glue for, attaching a steel washer to a cardstock 'nacelle'? when I built my skydart II I got it a smidge nose heavy, I would like to add a couple of dg worth of washers to the aft end of the nacelles to shift the cg aft a smidge and improve the glide. thanks,
Rex

Flat side of washer against paper? I'd try rubber cement after degreasing the washer. I've used that in the past and it works well. Actually it was spray adhesive like 3M 77 but rubber cement should work also.

Good luck.

rubber cement may work...I simply don't use enough to justify buying a bottle for two drops. decided to try a couple of wee drops of thick CA to glue a couple of #2 stainless washers in place. thanks for the suggestion.
