SPEAKING OF TUBES...


  
A few posts back I was talking about a polystyrene cement called BRITFIX 77 (manufactured by HUMBROL) that was 'the' model kit glue of the 1960s.  Guess what?  I managed to obtain one from eBay, so I thought I'd post a picture of it.  Bring back any happy memories for anyone?

I don't mean glue-sniffing - I'm talking about assembling (and painting) those great AIRFIX and AURORA plastic model kits of your childhood.

I don't know if Britfix 77 was still around in the mid-'70s when I was assembling my Airfix models but it doesn't ring a bell - I probably didn't take any notice of the glue though. I've never bought anything on e-bay but I'm amazed at what can be found on there - a used tube of glue ?? I assume it's been used - the tube looks flat in that photo :D

It's not entirely flat, CJ, but it's not full. The glue inside is dried up however. I just wanted it for the logo on the tube and the box.
