The extra thin only refers to the brush. If your glue has gone too thick it's drying out so get a new bottle.

The 'extra thin' refers to the viscosity of the glue. It does also have a thinner brush than the Tamiya cement with the white top, but the main difference is the thinner viscosity.

Slightly off-topic (and only slightly), a little known fact with the brush in the lid of the tamiya cements, when the bottle starts to get low on glue, the brush can be pulled out further so that the brush is still in the glue. Just use a pair of needle nose pliers to pull it out a bit.

You don't need piers to pull the down you use you twisters or hands

Stop it Webby, thats too funny!

Henry, I only mentioned pliers cause what I read, thats what they used, presumably to stop glue getting on their fingers. But if it is loose enough I guess fingers or tweezers would work.

Just don't extend it too far, or when you next go to use it, after the tip has been pressed against the bottom of the jar, the brush has the appearance of a fish with rigamortis :silly: I know this from experience :blush:
