PostSubject: Repairing Lineols   Thu Nov 30, 2017 3:12 pm

Hi there, I don't know if there was such topic, if there was I'd really appreciate a link to such discussion.

I have a growing collection of Lineols and Elastolins, many of them are quite well damaged, and require resculpts and repaints.

Does anyone know what sort of glue is safest with those oldies ? I don't want to destroy them, and I'd like to ommit all possible chemical reactions with glue, or paints.

I'd mostly care to keep them for another decades, without destroying the models.

Also I use vinyl/acrylic paints, and acrylic primer/gesso - is there anything dangerous about those that could cause any damage ?


Thanks for help!

For stabilising crumbly bits I had some success with super-glue (cyano-acrylate) bled into the wounded area, however, it got very hot, I mean; too hot to handle for several minutes, but it did work on a bunch of Czechoslovakian figures. I was useing dirt cheap unbranded £-shop stuff and was pleased to find it didn't cause any white frosting either, and soaked in instantly.

For larger mends you need wood powder (not 'saw' dust, proper wood-flour) mixed with linseed oil, but I think you have to find special linseed ('Boiled'), not the stuff you buy for tennis rackets and cricket-bats! The Linseed will give you the colour of all that German, Czech and Belgian composition.

For a lot of French, Japanes and British composition you will will need pumice, for that whitey-grey look (but you can use PVA wood glue with is kinder and pretty inert), while the US (only a few small companies) used either, but with bull's blood as one of the constituents, theirs is usually brownish.

Antique sites/forums are better for research on this than toy/model figure sites/forums.
