HA! THAT was the trick I was trying to remember last night. I used to do a
lot of model building when I was real young and knew this trick, but have
forgotten it over the 20+ years since I last built a plastic model. Thanks
for reminding me!

Many years ago, I used to take the plastic trees that model parts came on
and add some to a small glass jar with some acetone in it to dissolve or
soften the plastic, so that I could make a thick paste with it. Then I would
use this paste to do "body work" on a model car to customize it. The liquid
plastic model glue for styrene plastics does the same thing.
