So traditional building method call for putting wax paper over plans so the glue does not adhere to the plans. This method seems to work well with ambroid and white glue. How ever it does not work well for me with super glue. Satellite City glues stick quite well to super glue. Should I be using a mold release along with the wax paper. Any suggestions?

Try parchment paper available at the grocery store in baking supplies. Nothing sticks to it even Ca glues, leaves no residue and is transparent enough to read the plans through it. Works for me. Thermals, Glenn03/25/2016 at 1:09 am #55855Mike SchwartzParticipant
Don’t use the generic brands of wax paper. They don’t have enough wax on them to act as a release agent for ca glues. Use the Cut-Rite brand as it works real well for our purposes. in the early 1970’s Bob and Bill Hunter made a series of video’s on how to use Hot Stuff. You can find the video’s on U-Tube. As part of the video presentation there was a section on how to fiberglass using Hot Stuff which I helped with the production as I had a fiberglass business back then. Cut-Rite wax paper was used in the video and mentioned by Bob as the wax paper that works the best. Parchment paper also works well like Glenn says.

I have watched the Hunter videos on YouTube. I have found his technique of using 3M 77 to hold things down temporarily really useful. I had thought about parchment but have never tried it, but I will now. I just have to wait until my wife is not looking. The wax paper I have been using is Reynolds Cut Rite. Satellite City Hot CA sticks right to it. You can peel/sand it of…. eventually.

I use & recommend the parchment paper for all the reasons Glenn stated, but it can even be drawn on with pencil to create building plans, tracings, etc.
Stan Buddenbohm found this out several years ago & glad he shared with us in the hobby.
But don’t understand why you need to wait til wife is not looking… 😕03/28/2016 at 3:09 pm #55858SIMON BLAKEParticipant
I’ve tried everything to prevent ca glue from sticking and I haven’t found anything that works. I use the Cut rite wax paper but I still end up with wax paper glued to the model. I tried parchment paper — same thing, and same with various other brands of wax paper.03/28/2016 at 5:51 pm #55859MARK COVINGTONParticipant
I buy inexpensive clear drop cloths at the hardware store and cut them to size. Cheap and nothing sticks to them.
