An adhesive used in attaching pieces of a scale model kit together. This glue melts and bonds the plastic, def. 9 or balsa wood it comes into contact with. During the 1950's and 60's, when scale model kits reached their height of popularity, only adults could purchase this glue because it was abused by mischievous children addicted to inhaling the vapors. The gaseous particles emanating from the stringy, sticky glue caused light-headedness and a weezy, def. 7 feeling. Testors manufactured an airplane glue in a distinctive orange colored tube. High concentrations of airplane dope, used in flying model kit assembly, can produce similar results.
"You've got a nice model there. All you need to get started is some paint and airplane glue, and a well ventilated work space."
