Does anyone know of any super glue or any other glue for that matter that wont leave a white residue but can still glue metal to metal, plastic to metal, resin ect.
I use very cheap super glues myself, and I can only think of one suggestion:
Stop using so much.
I've never had a problem with the residue except where I've spilled it.

2-part epoxy. Better hold, lasts longer.

Ill probably try the epoxy. I understand that the residue can be painted over, but I like to keep parts of my models un assembled to make painting easier.
The white residue is a result of too much glue- try using the same stuff you have but a little less of it.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
On the occasions that I paint a model before assembley, I like to pin all the components and dry-fit them before I start anything. This should help eliminate the residue you speak of because you'll only be using glue on the pins.
Additionally, you can stick the components into a cork by their pins to paint so that you don't need to handle the model.
A tip I've picked up for working with superglue; it reacts to moisture so if you lick a finger and run it along the surface you intend to glue before you apply anything (very important, do it out of order and you'll stick your finger to it) then it should bond quicker and more securely meaning you need to use less glue.
krazy glue in the small green tubes but sometime it still leaves the white residue
