I got a phone call from a backer who wanted to know what kind of glue to use. The answer is old school Testors model kit glue. Avoid super glue.

I prefer Plastruct Plasti Weld. Orange bottle. Great stuff and helps hide the seams.

i've never had issues with super glue on ABS plastic kits before. the main thing is to get the right kind. you want the gel type (to control how much you use and where it goes, and you want to get a higher quality version.. personally i find gorilla glue brand is awesome if you want durability. the cheaper stuff can work, but i prefer to save that for stuff like terrain where you can really add extra to ensure a good grip.

I Personaly use the Bob smith industires glues which you can find at most hobby stores that can do a decent sized order as the bottle will then have the stores logo on it.

Other wise i'd suggest Zap a gap i've used that before i got on to the BSI glues.

Testors Red, not Testors Blue, however.

Why you use the Testors is that it actually reacts with the plastic and creates a stronger
bond then the normal CA glue. CA Glue is best for assembling metal, or mixed plastic and
metal. So, if you got the Con Exclusive Max or Miriyia metal minis? After you are through
pinning the daylights out of them, you would use standard CA glue.

If you are going to actually use these for gaming, though, not just display? You want to
use Testors Red.

Ditto. I've used it for plastic, metal and resin miniatures. Never had a problem with them.

I used Testors Red and it worked great. It really helped getting rid of most seams, too. Not all, but most.
