What's that Smell?
I picked up some Super Gold odorless glue today at Hobbytown. If you thought GW was expensive, try $13 for an ounce of this stuff. I'm not sure what happened to me, but after a couple years of model assembly, regular super glue triggers an allergic reaction. I get allergy symptoms lasting at least a day. Allergies can take a couple years to exhibit themselves, so it's not that surprising. Primer is even worse, but I wear a respirator for that. However, model building projects using glue can take several hours, making a respirator impractical. The advice I'm getting is to work very hard at ventilation and try this type of glue. I was told one guy even built a special ventilation box to build his models. I've got an urge to build more chimeras for 40K, so I may give this a test soon.
