Newsletter 472: Contacta clear

Contacta clear

Contacta clear
Today we are not going to talk about cars, motorcycles or drivers, today we are going to introduce you a new product just arrived that we LOVED, so we felt like it deserved to be highlighted. It is called Contacta Clear by Revell and it is an acrylic glue that dries completely transparent. It surprises at first sight due to its density, it is served in a bottle with 20 grams of product (about 17ml) and it also includes an application brush on the lid.

It is designed to glue plastic parts, especially the transparent parts, since once dry it's really difficult to point where the glue is. Magic? It certainly is, and of the good kind. As if that were not enough, the product is also really cheap and we can send it everywhere on this planet. :)

At SpotModel we are currently studying the possibility of shipping to Mars... but it seems that there are still few modelers in the area XD (although there are already a few scale models up there! ;-)
