    Any tips for the uninitiated, from those in the know?

    As for the FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY - is that like the warning not to cut the tag off my mattress? If they find out I am not a professional, can I expect a stern knock at the door? Black helicopters???

            Fantastic!

            Curious - how does it interact with polystyrene? Wondering about if the solvents in NS9001 might eat it alive or just bond really well to it. I am assuming it provides excellent adhesion to the base material and workability, otherwise you would not be using it.

            On the subject of solvents - I have seen you brush it on in a bunch of past pics. Do the brushes clean up with just Thinner or Acetone? MEK? Seems like it applies nice and thin, for a putty, then dries relatively fast. Interested about the syringe technique that you displayed. Does it need to be thinned down first?

              Yes, the solvent in Nitro-Stan will eat into polystyrene and ABS and other chemically similar plastics. The polite term is, 'self-etching'. Use a little at a time and you're good. Use too much at first layer and you destroy the plastic.

              Cut Nitro-Stan with any Acetone/MEK heavy 'lacquer thinner' (some brands are good, some not so good).
