I have been working on an Estes D region tomahawk for the last week or so - it's pretty much done. My only issue is that the plastic to plastic joints seem to have very little strength. Plastic to body tube seems OK. I am using Testors plastic model cement from the tube - as Estes recommended. When I gave a light wiggle of each fin 2 days ago - I could hear them cracking in the joint :y: Today I went down each one with a "fillet" of their liquid cement, and it does'nt seem much better. I seem to remember someone suggesting a plastic cement thats melts/welds the plastic itself together and provide a much stronger joint, but I can't seem to find it (of course). I used this same tube on an Estes Blue Ninja about 2 weeks ago, and it seems to have worked fine - I assume it's a different plastic on this model. Any suggestions or ideas ? Thank you all in advance for your help or suggestions.
