Micro Scale Foil Adhesive is the only one that works well with foil. However, it is very thick out of its plastic container. But it takes diluting with alcohol or even ordinary water very well. You can thus get a thinner and more even coat than by applying it directly out of the container.

 

Some have even sprayed it, after dilution; I was never bold enough to try that, for fear of ruining my airbrush ...

 

Finally, in my limited experience, it is better to spread the glue on the plastic, where you can limit the panel with masking tape, and apply the foil, than spread the glue on the foil and trim the edges of the panel which have adhered where you did not want it to ...

 

As for your Crusader, Mark, it is looking great. You obviously have found your own effective way with foil and Micro Scale Foil Adhesive :goodjob:
