Added the red interiored CMC Uhlenhaut to my collection. Got this for a steal, albeit with a missing mirror and one small broken part (totally fixable).

Literally late to work today because of this

Need help from the group.
I picked up a Porsche Cayenne in 1:18 scale yesterday from a friend of mine who is settling abroad. The 2 OVRM are broken but the good news is it is not lost. What sort of glue will put it back together? Can someone advise on the local availability of the same. please.

Just use Feviquik. Easily available and will do the trick. I have fixed many broken ORVMs and even Formula 1 car parts with it. Max 1 to two drops per ORVM.

As @Dippy says FeviQuick does the trick. For these tiny parts I use a pin to apply to FeviQuick glue. It gets that teenie weenie bit of glue on without leaving a blob when it dries. Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion and hint for application. I will post the picture here soon after the rework.

I had some free time on my hand today and took this opportunity to rework the broken Porsche. As suggested, the fewikwik worked effortlessly. Thanks again for the suggestion.
Now for some pictures.
