Can not fault the service!

I love the smell of Tamiya extra thin.

Its nearly as good as UHU, from the 70's, almost a pear drops smell.

Its never been an issue for me, and I only have a stock of 7 spare bottles.

Sorry that wont help, but I do like Tamiya extra thin LOL

Hope you get it sorted, as most of the glues do have something of a smell or can have an headache effect

Regards

I do not use TET Andrew, i use plastic magic as it has no smell and has a very good thin brush in the lid but it evaporates quickly, and often if i drop a part by the time i fit it again the glue has gone so have to do it again which is a pain

Sorry was not thinking straight when I sent that message. Forgot your had mentioned plastic magic. Was in A&E at the time. Suspected kidney stone. Whilst the pain subsided fairly quickly I have to back tomorrow morning for a CT scan....

Good luck with your glue hunt.

I too like the smell of Tamiya Extra Thin...the other most memorable is the old Airfix tube glue. I find odorless solvents very misleading as I get nauseous not knowing I have an open bottle or can right under my nose. The smell I think acts as a warning just like gas which in its natural form is odorless and is artificially scented with an onion scent.

Cheers,
Richard

Good to hear its all clear with the scan.

I think I need a scan on my nose...liking the smell of solvents is not a good sign :smiling6:

Cheers,
Richard

Bob - you could always try this stuff, it has a citrus smell

MrCement

No idea if it works as glue though

Personally I also like the smell of TET, MrCementS, MekPak, Plasweld, Humbrol Poly - been using them so long probably have brain rot as a result :tongue-out3:
