I’ve used ordinary white PVA wood glue thinned with a little water if too thick - if you’re careful and patient works well. Take care to test first as too much water grains up the paper a tad.

I've cut the components apart and separated them from the backing paper. The colour is only on the front side, the reverse being plain white. Can you paint this? And if yes, what type of paint? I feel acrylics would better than enamels.

Luck and superstition wins every time!


In progress: 5x 1/24 Airfix Typhoon.

Hmm, have not tried painting the backs.  I think oils are recommended, but I use acrylics to weather the seatbelts but am moving towards water colors.  Have not really tried much at this point tho.
