Hi Balsaloc has always rung my bell as far as attaching Mylar is concerned.  However, my local model shop no longer stocks it, or anything else much use for that matter.  I've thrown out better balsa than they have in their rack.

Anyway, is Balsaloc still available in the U.K.  I guess it was produced by Solarfilm and they are effectively wound up so I believe.  

Any ideas and any substitutes that don't involve dissolving toothbrushes and hens teeth in some chemical that isn't available anyway.

Grrrr ... it's getting that I spend more on P&P than the stuff I want  Cry

IMO and experience  Wink... Balsaloc is simply white glue.
Can buy White Glue almost anywhere even in 5 gallon pails

I don't know if you can get it in the UK, but I like Sig's Stix It.
