Does Forgeworld resin act more like metal or plastic when it comes to glueing?
Will plastic glue melt plastic and resin pieces together or will I need to use superglue?
As far as I've seen in my years of working with resin. Plastic glue doesn't work at all.
Most plastic glue is designed to work with Polystyrene or PVC plastics. It acts by melting the styrene or PVC so that it bonds with other styrene or PVC or other plastic of a similar structure.
Resin contains no PVC or styrene to "melt" there for it just becomes a sloppy mess as stated in the reply above.
Super glue is the best and really only bet unless you want to use some kind of 2 part epoxy glue (but that is just as sloppy as thick plastic glue).
yup, you need superglue for resin, poly cement just won't do it
