Default Glueing Finecast Models?

Hey everyone.

I sat down recently to assemble my Herald of Tzeentch on a Disk Finecast model.

However, the problem was that the super glue I normally use (UHU All Purpose Adhesive) would'nt stick the various pieces together. Instead they remained very loose, fragile, and moved when touched.

Now, the only other glue I have available is a product called Revell Pro Contacta which is an amazing liquid cement. However, as far as I'm aware, liquid cement won't work on Finecast as it melts plastic together, whereas Finecast is not true plastic, and hence, will not melt.

So, my question is this:

What is an effective product brand of glue which can be used (and has been proven to work) when glueing together finecast models? What do you folks all use? Also, it would be helpful if the product is easily available on Amazon, as where I live getting 'common' moedlling supplies isn't so easy.

I'd really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.


(Also, you don't have to pin Finecast models do you? Such as with large models like Bloodthirsters or Lords of Change?)

Pinning:

You don't have to, you certainly don't have to do anything with smaller models, with larger ones you can if you want though.

Any super glue will work, uhu all purpose isnt a super glue btw.
If you want a brand you cant go wrong with locktite

Did you wash them beforehand?, I found the ones I've built are covered in grease so need a good soaking beforehand and a gentle scrubbing

Thats so weird. Maybe its because I live in the US or something but I have never received a finecast model, or a plastic sprue, covered in mold release like everyone always complains about.

I've not had one either but I do still give it a good scrub.

+1 for Loctite super glue, the GW stuff just doesn't work as well.

Thanks for the replies guys, I ordered the Krazy superglue on Amazon and I'll post how I got on with it (hopefully) later this week.

+rep for the replies.
