Polystone questions

Guys,
This may seem like a couple of dumb questions, but I'll ask them anyway.
Can polystone be grinded, filed, or drilled?
What is the best glue for it?
Bob

Re: Polystone questions

Bob,

Yes, yes, and yes. It's just really fragile and ill suited for the things Dragon decided to use it for in their Cyber Hobby releases. Much better for decorative statuary that sits on an old lady's shelf…

I have used regular quick drying Krazy Glue to repair some damaged polystone bits on my le IG 18. It worked find - everything bonded well.

Fred

Re: Polystone questions

Polystone has proven once again to be a bad buy.
I picked up a field kitchen with shattered wheels, broken hitch and tongue, many broken doors.... in the unopened box.
I hope that I never buy anything else made of this material.
I can't find any adhesive that really bonds this stuff.

I guess the good news is I bought a piece that comes already battle damaged.....
Diorama to follow?
LOL

Maybe some day they'll go back and do these in plastic?

Re: Polystone questions

Sorry to hear that man, I know that field kitchen is super hard to come by and probably cost some pennies. Is it beyond repair?

Re: Polystone questions

CF....try a local hobby shop that also sells RC vehicles and part. They carry a black rubberized super glue. I have had good look with it on PS. It can be sanded and painted.....also works best if you can clamp parts together.

Re: Polystone questions

I used JBWeld with success when i made repairs to my CH polystone pieces. I hope you can repair your field kitchen.
