I’ve had this 1/4 scale Yamaha YZR-M1 since before the pandemic & just getting the time, now that I’ve semi-retired to build this model.

Was wondering if any glue was needed for building this model. I’ve watched a few YouTube videos of how it’s put together & for the most part it’s all done with screws, but I may be wrong.

If glue was needed, what brand & type would you recommend? Thanks in advance!

Hi, BigGrin

To the best of my knowledge, there should not be any need for glue.

Where the kit is a bolt together (screw together) its very unlikely. At times you will get press in parts and the odd part may need the smallest spot of super glue should they be a little loose. To date I`ve not needed any glue on lots of builds.

Good luck with your build and enjoy your semi-retirement.

Simply put no, you won’t need glue.
