Tips & Tricks: Handy Hinge Flue Spreader [January 2012]

Handy Hinge Glue Spreader: Many of today’s 3D foamie airplanes utilize contact adhesive as a hinge material. Spreading the glue can be a messy job. A single-edged razor blade makes an excellent spreading tool but sometimes it can be difficult to use in tight places.  By attaching a wooden clothespin to the razor blade, it’s easier to get into tight spots and create a nice clean hinge line.
