Must haves to assemble a plastic kit?
I've avoided plastic kits. I had bad experiences with them years ago. I tend to stick to laser cut wood for the ones I want to be just so, or to the pre-built structures ready to drop on the layout.
However, my 6 year old is now interested in building a module so I have her two nice new T-Trak bases. Of course the kits that caught her eye are simple plastic kits. Of course she wants the thing dad isn't good at! Ha!
So what's the tips and tricks on a plastic kit? What sort of adhesive works best? What tools do I need to make this come out ok?
I'm thinking I need one of those metal bases with the magnet pieces to hold the walls while drying. I have a sprue nipper and plenty of x-acto blades of all sizes. I've used CA and Testers Cement in the past, and found both hard to control.
