Re: Rio Grande Models trucks

There are high impact grades of ACC.  These are typically of medium viscosity and moderate setting time.  Check out the local model aircraft supply source - they need the high impact strength in landing gear & etc.  As do the drone flying folk.

If you have the NG&SLG disc, check out Boone Morrison's articles.  I believe that he did one on assembling these trucks.  Jim Vail may also have written on this subject.

Greetings all. I am hoping that someone around here might be able to offer up a little advice regarding the assembly of RGM white metal tricks. I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a couple dozen pairs of trucks just before Eric closed up shop. The problem I have is that although I have assembled several white metal vehicle kits, I have absolutely no experience in the assembly of white metal trucks. It seems to me that CA works fine for static models I am afraid it wouldn't hold up to the rigors of constant flexing and movement required for operational truck sets on my layout. Anyone have suggestions or comments regarding the durability and assembly? I would greatly appreciate any help I can get.
