Hi guys, posting after a long time here.. This is for all the DIY plastic model makers. I have a few plastic model kits which i plan to assemble. i want to know which is the best adhesive avlbl in the indian market for this purpose. i know superglue/fevikwik is bad for the plastic and chrome parts. some of the parts i have are broken too and those have been long discontinued so i need to fix them. These models are very precious so pls help me out. Thanks!

Super glue is at one end of spectrum and Arelditie is at other end. Local make Cyano acrylate adhesives are good enough. Their setting time is tad slower than superglue, used extensively by model airplane kit builders and
Architectural model makers. I am using the same to build the 1936 ford (yet to complete her), I did found problem fixing chrome part on to the unpainted plastic body, else it was smooth.

Superglue is not suitable for sticking chrome parts together. the chrome just reacts to the glue. i have ruined a model like that.

Maisto makes alot of ferrari kits. if you are starting out, those are excelent in making you understand how a model is put together. i suggest you buy a few
