I haven't tried it; still have an older version from the mid '90s that still works.

Yea, I did some more research - Model Master is a Testors brand (which now belongs to Rustoleum). I'm guessing the black label Model Master was more or less the same as Testors 3507 and Testors simply decided to stop competing with themselves. But here is were it got really interesting - Hobbylinc shows Testors 3507 as now discontinued - replaced by Testors 281216. I was placing an order from Hobbylinc anyway so I added a couple bottles of Testors 281216.
The really interesting part? It showed up yesterday - and the card is labeled 281216. But the actual glue bottle says 3507 :confused:
I still have a little Model Master stuff left, I'll have to see how this works after I run out of Model Master...

BTW aeopav - it's the combination of viscosity (thicker than the pure liquids) so if fills gaps better, it glues most plastics well, and that applicator tip is perfect for making sure you get it just where you want it.

Td,

So glad you found the glue.

Hobbylinc sometimes seems to not update the SKU, part #'s etc. I'll do a search
with a known # or kit name; an oop kit shows up under a normal search as oop; click on a related brand (Monogram - Revell) and there it is in stock.

Great company to deal with however.

So here is a possible solution? What if one were to take a new bottle of Testors 281216/3507, cut the plastic applicator tip off midway and secure a metal syringe tip like this :

It also appears to me that the alternatives John has suggested are worth trying.
