That's Starwood rivet Glue. Joe sells it at ECSH. Good stuff and easy to use.

glue pigment

With the rivit glue, as it is PVA based (water soluble)you can add colour pigment, and apply after you have painted,( a lot easier to prepare and paint without rivits)
Because you will know your paint colours, easy enough to mix the glue colours in different syringe's, including white, as the PVA dry's clear
Then apply your laquer coat

Not available anymore

Have you checked their website?

There are other alternatives, but not as a kit

The kits are listed, but one of my fellow club members ordered the kit, and when he got it there was. No glue.
He called and was told all that was left was the sets, but no glue....

No glue

That being the case there are a couple of alternatives
Formula 560, Canopy glue, Very good, quick drying and clear, can be used prior to laquer and the paint colour shows through
Go to your local hardware store and buy some PVA wood glue, depending on what you purchase, some are thinner than others, but can be thickened with an additive, (baby powder was one I heard of)

I have Joe's kit and glue. Works good. I like it. Will be using it for the 832 bazillion rivets needed on Airwolf.

Made some progress..

Molded a new aft belly for the 212 off the 412 body. Also machined a wax of a Bear Paw so I can poor a mold from it.

I will have to call Joe. I placed an order and so far no word.

Here is the updates.

BOING!.. thanks peter.. thanks Barry that was a fun project..

The old petrol motor ruined the aft area and so I made a new one. No on to the tail boom. Not sure if I will need to buy a new one or fix this one.. I have to strip the paint and take a closer look.

Great job on the belly repair. Reminds me of when I used to repair truck fenders.

I didn't crash. I just ran out of airspeed, altitude, and ideas all at the same time!

Dang!! You boat guys have some serious skills! Looking real good. Thanks for sharing the rebuild with us.

You have one of those fancy machining machine things?!?! I'm jealous.
