Ju-88 and Glue

Some of the tubing I used was Plastruct, it requires a special glue and it works just like regular model glue and will bond both Plastruct and styrene.

The wire does not glue with regular glue so I used some gap filling super glue.

Gluing dis-similar materials together sometimes requires special adhesives.  I used Goo contact cement from Walthers.  It's sold in model railroad shops.

These tiny bits of the original landing gear were saved for use on the new landing gear.  I used the Plastruct glue to hold them onto the plastic coated wire.

Here's a close up photo of the improved new landing gear.
