very old recipe but is perfect for plastic models , Bravo

yup, did that in school in the 90´s as a kid.. ;D now it became pretty usefull :)

Acetone dries too quickly and will leave a brittle bond. Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) dries slower and works much better. MEK is used by the paint industry but has been banned in some states, notably California. I use MEK and ABS glue to repair and reseal metal detector coils.

that highly depends on the proportions of Acetone to ABS. higher density glue will dry quickly while the opposite can take up to 30 hrs
