The name of the problem

Response to Soldering Basics

is most likely Eduard. Their sets are usually coated with nickel(?) which does not work well with solder. You have to rub the coating away so that the brass becomes visible. Then apply the flux on to the surface to be soldered and touch it with a soldering iron that has some solder in its tip. Then make the bond between the parts.

In my experience Aber flux is not very good but I admit that I have tried it only a couple of times. But if your problems will not go away you should perhaps try an other flux as well.

Best regards,


PS. Also Part and Voyager parts are covered with something that requires removing prior to soldering. Aber and Royal Models can be soldered stright out from the box. Lion Roar can also be soldered without problems if I remember correctly.
