Any recommendations? I want to use this to align the hull tub and upper parts of a DML Sdkfz 250 which is not easily done!

In the UK we use Araldite, with the red and white tubes. You get about 2 to 3 minutes to work with a fresh batch.

As I'm also in the UK perhaps you could let me know where you get your supply from?

I guessed you were by the surname. You should be able to pick up Araldite at any B&Q store, or if you live further away, a local handyman's store. It smells a bit of cat piss once mixed, but it's great for manouvering kit pieces. You can also use it for gluing resin zimmerit sheets.

In America we have a wide variety of 5 Min Epoxies, I Can't Recall the Brand But There is one that comes with an auto mixing set and my Hobby Shop has there own Custom 5 Min Epoxy which I prefer Better Because You Mix the Epoxy yourself So You Can make it Thick or Thin.

I think I may have seen a mixing kit like the one you are talking about somewhere. Now, if I could only remember where....
