Loctite works about like most it's fairly quick setting and holds well. It can get a bit heavy after the end of the bottle has been used a bunch. I agree most super glues are very similar, some have better bottles and the tips stay a bit cleaner. So different manufacturers have advantages. I found the Loctite cap to be easy to use and the tip was O.K. after a lot of Bones glue work. I think I'll buy smaller bottles next time.

ZAP CA is very thin, but works great (not cheap) - very fast setting time and has a spray to make it quicker if you desire. I had two fingers and a thumb glued together in a millisecond when using the CA. It's quick. Luckily they were tiny spots, but be wary. ;)

ZAP-A-GAP (not cheap) is a thicker version I have not used yet. I think the spray works on this too.

The generic Gel I have is pretty slow to set and I've had i fail on some surfaces. It also is not for fine detailed gluing.

Is there really a difference between superglues that anyone has noticed?

Several super glues...
.
Loctite standard professional liquid (for most pieces)
ZAP CA (on a few of the trickier ones)
ZAP-A-GAP (not yet used on these, really)
and some Gel Super Glue. (when some thickness was needed)

All seem to be doing their job.
thx...

What type of glue are you all using?

Fantastic details and a few pieces that aren't well represented out there. Good stuff. The only issue I have encountered is a few of the finer details on some of the tables proved a bit difficult to align properly with these ogrish sausages I have for fingers. I really need to practice with my new tweezer set a bit more.

Those gibbets almost had me screaming and my 70+ jail bars and doors tool a bit of time to make up a good variety of free standing to make several type of jail scenarios. I should post some of those pics here. Maybe soon.
I still have multiple book cases, 8 statues of armor and the spinning wheel to glue still, yikes. Plus other things that shouldn't be so bad.

I've been pretty happy with the pieces I've painted up so far. I haven't noticed any visual artifacts from the 3d printing process, although there have been a few casting anomalies where the detail was mushed, but it was in out of the way places. I did have to heat up the floor of that spiral staircase to flatten it out, but it wasn't any more onerous than Bones, or Privateer Press plastics.
I did not have an issue with the stair. Molds wear out so just because I did not have an issue does not mean one did not develop.
I am very happy with mine too

I could put a wash and high light on it so that the layering would stand out ;) . I do not think it is noticeable unless you enlarge it.For the way I use the fire place, with a fire, I do not think it is something that matters a lot.

I need to dust :!: I also need to finish painting the stack of books on the left.
