Plastic repair and molding set

One of the bigger problems for many of us is how to repair or replace broken bits on our kits. Often one runs into a situation where either the manufacturer is unresponsive to our request for replacements, the kit is long out of production, or we just want to make or duplicate a part. We could also come into the situation where we have broken some part and need a good method for repair.

Plastech is a a set of materials that will allow not only the repair of broken plastic parts, but also provides a means of manufacturing new bits. The molding bar can be shaped to fit around whatever part needs to be repaired or to use for a mold for a duplicate part. It is a somewhat waxy material that can be reused many times.

The small kit that I received consists of  a bottle of Plastech Liquid, a bottle of resin powder, a powder dish, applicator, pipette, needle and a molding bar.

Instructions are provided for the proper use and mixing of the materials. It appears to be a relatively simple to use. This is not a one-shot set and there appears to be enough material for a number of small repair or molding jobs.

I've not had a chance to use this for any repair or molding tasks, but the set has a lot of possible uses for modelers and I'll give it a full test in the near future.
