Britfix balsa glue
Brought in with an old wooden boat kit recently, this tube of glue takes me right back to my first modelling days.
I can't remember how old I was, possibly 5 or 6, when my Dad presented me with a carrier bag full of balsa wood offcuts, a knife and some glue. Britfix glue to be precise. For that bag of bits, an entire modelling career was born.
This glue is still in mint condition. I've not opened the tube, but it's still squishy so I bet it would work.
How many others remember this range? As I recall, there was also a plastic cement with a yellow ended tube, but I can't be sure. When did Britfix disappear?
