"One of My Best Purchases"

I use this for applying liquid cement. It gets into the tightest spaces and the cement flows perfectly. This tool is for the liquid cements and parts already assembled or tacked together with CA. Then you drag the thin needle like tip along the joint and the cement is literally pulled between the parts and they bond instantly. This is a must have tool for plastic model builders. The tip can plug from plastic residue but is easily cleaned by dipping in liquid cement. Buy the filler bottle too because it simplifies filling the thin glass tube. Like another reviewer suggested use care when storing the applicator in its case as the needle is easily bent.

"Great, but keep your cement clean!"

This applicator is best called a pipette, as it is nothing more than a fine-gauge blunt needle fused to a glass tube. It works very well- hold it horizontally and the cement stays in the glass tube. Tip it down a bit and a small drop will form at the end. Apply it to a seam, THEN tip it slightly down, and you get cement only in the seam with no mess. It does clog very easily, both with dissolved plastic and with any crud you might have in your liquid cement (usually caused by dipping a not-so-clean brush in the cement). It cuts way down on losing cement to evaporation, because it will stay in the pipette for a long time before it dries. I've had to blow it out with my airbrush a few times when it got clogged. I see that Flexifile now has a bottle to ease filling of the applicator. I think I can fill it with a syringe, also. Even though it's a bit fiddly at times, I not only would recommend it to a friend, I already have!

When used with Tamiya's Extra Thin Cement, I get bonded joints that are vastly neater and stronger than with tube cement. I can reach inside things like an aircraft fuselage that would be impossible with other methods. No more tube cement for me!
