    What kind of glue do I use on FSM wooden kit? I have the sawmill #170.

    Hi...I use a "Beacon 527", which I believe I got at Michael's. It's the closest thing you'll find to the older, cellulose-based adhesives. It dries fast, and clear. It's all I use in my wood kits, both structures and rolling stock. Just don't use too much, a little will go a long way, and it won't squueze out and then keep paint from adhering to the wood....

    Good luck..!!

    You can also try super glue. Get the hobby shop variety which is gap filling and re-closeable. Have some finger nail polish ready if you are messy.

    Applying wood glue with a tooth pick or brush works as well.
