Realize that IF you glue it, you might be inhaling the residue of the glue vapors, this is very dangerous (glue sniffing is illegal) not to mention EXTREMELY harmful.

Most glues these days bond at the molecular level forming a new bond to join the to parts.

I recommend getting a new snorkel. If you do decide to glue it, I would allow at least 48 hours to dry and keep it out in the open. Then after that time has elapsed, smell the snorkel, if there is any residue that down not smell like the original material, discard the snorkel.

Good luck.

How to build wooden model 402 albatros dv


The steps below are not exact the exact order but tips and suggestions but do feel free to use different ways and means if it is more appropriate to do so.

The building of the plane is tricky if it is your first time. Definitely not a novice job nor a 6 year can do. The plan does a poor job of showing the order of assembly or the way. I suggest taking the parts only when needed so that you would not need to search for pieces on the table. Taking the pieces out definitely needs some finesse; use a blade for delicate pieces (like #31 and 24). Glue is a must; and one that comes with the kit does a fine job. When using glue, do not start the other steps unless the white color of the glue turns transparent; ie dries.

The body (fuselage) construction should be the initial part of the building:
The inner piece (called #1) is flanked by left and right pieces (#8 L-R) and should be glued after gluing #2,3,4,5,6,7 (#3,4 &5 makes the pilot seat). Do use rubber bands to hold it in its place (3 should suffice). At this point you can also glue the lower tail fin (#18; don't break this piece into two).

You do not need to break apart the top piece of the body (#9) (you'll need to glue it back if you do) but do take the circle out from the middle since this will be the opening for pilot seat. Do glue the tail fin for your next step.

Once the glue dries, you can attach the top and bottom pieces of the body (#9 LR and 10). And apply the rubber bands again, till this section dries too. The top part of lower piece (#10) will not cover the bottom (because of the bottom is not straight) but that's OK. The wheel bars will go there later (#31 L-R).

You can assemble the propeller #26, 27, 28, 29x2, 30) meanwhile. Also you can assemble the engine compartment: Start with gluing one side of the #12, and #11 and #13 together. Then you can make the box with the rest of the pieces (#12,14,15). Do not attached these two pieces right away. Attaching the engine box to the body is better way to do it (#2 will face #11). Make sure the notches on #12 and #8 pieces align.

Attach (and glue) lower wing pieces (#23, and #24). Warning, the longer side should go to the front! This is not intuitive from the plan but the top wing (#25) will need to have an angled position when assembled (we leave that to the end for now).

I suggest leaving the assembly of the wheel parts in reverse order. Start with the wheels: 34, 33, 32 and 35 (in that order). Do leave a gap for #31L-R on the middle piece (#32). Attach the #31 L-R to the body and use glue generously. Attach the wheel kit (axle) while these pieces are not set. This will help you set up the angles right. Let is stay till it dries out.

You can glue machine guns #22 L-R (on top of #9 L-R) but make sure you leave some space for the outer part of the engine (#16, #17 - glue these together as well).

Gluing down the pieces 21 L-R is tricky. You need generous glue for the body side for these. Do not glue the top wing part. Using a rubber band, place the upper wing (#25) in its place and adjust the angle of these pieces so that it will touch the upper wing (#25). Once these connections dry out, you can assemble to upper wing.

Now all you should need to do is, glue down the tail wheel (#20), the propeller kit and the upper engine part (16-17).

This kit definitely takes time; especially when waiting for the glue to dry. This process was not my in my mind while getting this kit; nor I found it "easy" to assemble as it was written on the package. Not to mention, our 4-year old broke it within the first 15 minutes of play. Definitely not a kid's toy. However I feel more competent and feel like I can do a better job with a similar kit.

Need instructions for St Petersburg Church woodcraft construction


I have done this model, and the answer above is correct. While it is true that many of the pieces go together without glue, glue is required to keep some from falling apart while working. It is advisable to start without glue to make sure you have things connected properly. The kit comes with a very small tube - I got some carpenters glue when this ran out.
The pieces are labeled (on the back of the box) with letter number combination. The final number for each letter is inconsistent; the letters correspond mostly to construction groups. Be aware that some pieces which are apparently spacers inside others are actually important pieces. They get numbers, but are sometimes hard to see.
Good luck with your puzzle!

I was cleaning it good under the plastic cover that screws on and acci dently broke the lil flap that switches from floor to tool upholstery attachment so the main cover had to be be removed to put...


I did the same thing to mine, I was lucky enough to have both pieces lying in place. I still had to take it apart to get to the other parts and cleaned the off with acetone and I use "Gorilla Super Glue" can be found most anywhere for $5 for a 0.53oz bottle. It's pricey but it works. Mine has lasted for about a year now with switching the leaver often enough to forget that I ever had to glue it till now! Main thing to do is to make sure the pieces are held in the proper alignment until the glue has fully cured it says 30 seconds but I would put a few layers on the broken area and let dry for 15 minutes before reinstalling it, make sure you check the piece for proper fit before you glue it permanently. The reason I used this over a JB Weld or similar was due to the narrow hole that it goes through right where I broke it. JB Weld needs to have a small build up to work and this is a "flexible"Super Glue meaning it won't just snap and break if it's under force of twisting or bent slightly like an epoxy or a Crazy Glue liquid or gel will.this is the part you are asking about correct?zinda_0.jpgzinda.jpg

The on button seems to be stuck down on my sony cybershot


The button is made of plastic an one of the tabs i probably broken. If you have the skills to take your camera apart, you can fix it yourself. You can go to the YetiCam.com site, under manuals select Sony DSC-S600 Version 2 (Updated 2/17/07). This will tell you how to take the camera apart. Then you need to take some Super Glue and glue the two pieces back together. Be carful not to put too much glue on the pieces, or the switch will glue itself to the other pieces in the switch cover. Here are a couple of shots of the underside of the cover showing the switch piece. Red circles show the weak points.99f3da3.jpg7325b53.jpg
