Sorry, how in the name of the benevolent Emperor do you stick Forge World models together?
I asked because my good friend Seth (who is unable to come to his pc at the moment, having recently acquired the Matrix trilogy on DVD) has come into possession of a Kroot Knarloc, and is seriously bearded because he cannot stick the fething things claws to the end of its arms.
Help would be appreciated.

Superglue is for Resin and Metal
Polycement (aka Plastic Glue) is for Plastic
Hope that helps
I take it PVA doesn't work, right? I nearly killed a friend who PVA'd the XV88-2 I bought him for Christmas...Originally Posted by Knape97
PVA would work, but the bond would be VERY weak and could be broken extreamly easily.
If someone has glued stuff together with PVA, then they can get rid of the clue with a little warm (not hot, warm) water and then glue it together properly
Super glue sticks resin together faster than metal, and dont forget to wash all the resin bits in warm soapy water or the paint wont go on propely.

The biggest problem with sticking forge world models isn't the glue (although poly cement won't work at all- it works by melting the two plastic parts slightly and then the two parts bond as it dries) but is the slight film that covers the model. You probably won't notice it to look at it but it's a residue from the casting process. Wash the components in warm water with dish washing liquid and dry. They should glue better then. Superglue should be fine but if you've got lots of space to work with try a couple of drops of PVA with a couple of drops of superglue on top. The superglue sets by abosbing moisture (supplied by the PVA and the PVA dries by losing moisture. This is also a good technique for really solid scenery joins.
Good luck painting the beast!
