Response to Hi Alvaro

Hi Wayne:

It´s not the accelerator but the cyano glue... that is black coloured.

Coloured cyano glues have been around for some time (that build log is amost five years old already) and those are quite handy as, as you said, are far easier to see than clear ones. Those are available not only from some glue manufacturers but from modelling ones also, like Wave.

Black cyanos use to be "rubberised", that is, tinted using rubber dust particles. It is supposed that could add some flex at the cured cyano (that should be also a rather interesting feature) but that´s hardly noticeable at all.

Those use to be as much expensive as ordinary clear cyanos. But I would advise you to look for alternate sources (like eBay i.e.) as this seems to be quite popular item for make up... at least for some chinese manufacturers!

Regarding the accelerator, no secrets here. a must have if you wanted to (a) use cyano glues as fillers -like Ricardo did in a few parts of his JS build- or to (b) avoid any collateral damage by cyano fumes like in clear parts. A word of caution here. Not all cyano accelerators are safe for modelling -some might be rather agressive- so I would suggest you ensure to use one labeled as "foam safe".
