What glue do you use when assembling the Battlefront plastic tanks for Team Yankee?

Loctite Gel Control Super Glue for me.

Ordinary polystyrene cement as they are made from polystyrene. I use the same stuff on Plastic Soldier Company, Perry, Victrix, Airfix and every other polystyrene kit. As many will know, it dissolves the surface of the joint enough to make a proper bond. It is as cheap as chips and you can brush it on(Tamiya) or get a bottle with an incredibly fine metal neck/nib (Testor's).

Testors Model Glue with the long metal tip. You can apply it very neatly into small cracks and crevices. Available at many locations.

Testors or Tamiya cement.

Testors liquid cement, as mentioned above. Creates a better, cleaner bond than superglue. I have been building plastic models for over 30 years.

Humbrol liquid poly cement

Tamiya extra liquid cement. Used Revell contacta for twenty odd years but went back to liquid cement because it's more versatile. Got a gap between the hull and top ? clamp them together, apply glue through capillary action and leave it for a while, MUCH harder to do this with needlenose cement.

Brush-on Tamiya plastics glue.
Quick bond without the mess.

Usually Testors,the red or blue tube variety,and when needing to fix something. Resin/white metal;usually Gorilla Glue gel.

Plastruct Plasti-Weld for the plastic models, superglue for the resin/metal models.
