Learned something new. I’ll have to try the nail polish.Thanks to all. I have been using clear nail polish for the last week or so and find it works great for me on my 1:96 scale build. It leaves no residue like Cyrano and can be released later if necessary. Some of the bollards cleats and eye bolts are so small on this build that I find it nearly impossible to manually tie off. Also reduces the number of foul language expletives from me as I rig this build
No need, just use a sharp pointed instrument, like a dental pick, to loosen the knot and it will give with little effort. To retie and fix, just add another drop of nail polish when ready to fix the knot.I've always used diluted PVA to tie off knots as it leaves no residue and dries clear and without shine.
How do you go about 'releasing' the Nail polish knot- do you apply acetone?
