I use http://www.amazon.de/Pattex-Sekundenkleber-Ultra-Gel-PSG4C/d... for pretty much all my miniatures. Tried plastic glue in the old days, did not like it much.

I use Testors liquid model glue. For hard plastic, there is no better glue to use IMHO.

FWIW, I've tried both superglue and plastic glue and the plastic glue has been working better. Right now I have Games Workshop plastic glue. I don't particularly recommend it. I've used Testor's and Tamiya's liquid glue happily in the past.

Regardless, superglue will work and bond nearly as well once fully dry. The trick with superglue is to fit the pieces very well, since it likes surfaces with no air present. Plastic glue works by slightly softening the plastic so that it essentially welds together.

Humbrol do a brush on plastic glue. That is good when you want enough to glue, but not so much it will obscure details.

Hi Sebastian,

I also use cheap super glue (from 1€-Läden) and the only problem I found is that you cant control the flow very well because it's so fluid. But I found a super glue gel the other day, that is more controlable... I don't think that the expensive super glues work so much better...

Tamiya extra thin works very well. It's very thin and is applied with a brush.
You can either apply the glue to one of the pieces and then press them together or hold the pieces together and then apply the glue to the seam.
Capillary action takes care of the rest. I usually combine both methods.

Another plastic glue is UHU special. It should be available in your local Baumarkt. It has a metal tip applicator, but because of this tends to clog up.

Revell Plastikkleber is also widely available and can sometimes be found in toystores in the plastik kit section (car and plane kits). It also has a metal applicator tip.


Personally i prefer the Tamiya glue, but also use the others in some cases where the thin glue isn't working as well (like glueing models to face bases).

That's what I'm using in the black squeeze bottle with the needle tip. I will squeeze some out on the end of a toothpick, then spread the drop into an even layer on the piece being attached. That allows me much better control on the amount rather than trying to apply the drop directly to the mini. Unless it's a big seam, like on the larger monsters. Then I run a bead of the cement and then spread it around on the surface with the toothpick.

Is a personal favourite of mine.
Has the fine needle to get the glue in the right spot in the right amount.
Also, it's cheap.
