I'm curious about this and whether it works as well as their extra thin cement or there's a trade off since the scent may have changed the formula. Any ideas as to when it may be available in the US? Regards, MK

I think this is Tamiya's version of a non-toxic cement, similar to Plastruct's Weldene and the stuff Microscale markets. They all have that odd citrus smell. It's like opening a bottle of liquid room freshener. I've tried the Plastruct cement and it's O.K.; but, I'm not crazy about the fairly long setup time. I prefer Bondene or Plastic Weld. The parts are bonded and ready to work with in a minute or so.

...and all the girls at school are asking about the Matilda road wheels stuck in my bangs!"

If the stuff is anything like the 1970's Testors stuff, it's a stringy mess, but I expect more of Tamiya, in the 21st century.

my IPMS club used the Testor's Citrus/non-toxic blah blah cement in the past for our Kid's Modeling Classes. We stopped using the cement because it took forever to start to hold and the hold wasn't all that great. I've tried the Tamiya stuff at home and I stopped using it for the same reasons

for plastic kits with no problems in the adhesion dept. I like the fact that it gives you a little bit of extra time to set up your parts properly, it worked well on two trumpy kits and rommels rod and a tami tilly .And non of the toxic fumes that you get from other glues.
