Model Scratch Building

You may not have heard of it but scratch
building is a hugely popular hobby that fans take very seriously.

Scratch building involves building a
scale model but from scratch ie not using a commercial kit or a pre-assembled

What are the rules of scratch building?

There are no official rules to scratch
building. Some people believe that you can only call it scratch building if you
use completely raw materials and don’t have any plans or measurements to work
from. But others are not such purists and are willing to use even commercially
built parts in order to build their models.

scratch models?

Anything can be used to build scale
models from scratch, such as; wood, plastic, clay, paper or metal.

You need some kind of plan; either a
prototype to follow or a design of your own that can be transferred into a

project. At the end of the actual building, you then need to ‘finish’ the
piece. This involves trimming, polishing, painting, weathering etc. This is the
part of the process that will take your technical piece to the level of
realistic model.

Good luck and have fun.

I have a beko wm5100 washing machine and the pump impeller has come off Ive tried glueing it but to no avail is there anything else that I can do

Robert! Am I to understand that you...Never Mind! My Friend come over here I want to tell you a secret. Glue-Water-Pressure! They NEVER work! If it is an impeller it is probably a pump. most washers have two 1) Drain Pump (impeller) and circulating Pump-impeller. You need to REPLACE either or both the entire Pump, install it. Then use/store the glue to build Model Airplanes...Not on Washers?!

What kind of adhesive do I need to replace the bellow LHW0050PQ?

there isn't any glue or anything that you use,what you see is most likely old detergent,it builds up on the rubber boot caused from using to much soap,then the washer starts to stink and the soap eats at the spider gear on the back of the tub or spin basket and you'll hear a loud noise when in high spin,you should only be using 2 tablespoons of soap that's it.but there's no glue,there's a spring ring that holds the outside of the bellows on and another in the inside,if your boot has the little drain tub on the bottom or top there's a little clamp that holds it on and that's it.good luck with your repair

Which glue to reattach chromed plastic to plastic?

Use old fashioned model cement. Not the child safe type. The old type will melt the styrene to the styrene. The new stuff only fills the gap but never really makes a good bond.
