Never used victrix before so question: which glue to use? Could normal modelling glue as eg revell be used?

Polystyrene cement. Liquid is easiest to apply

I use Testors. No real problems but you have to be sure that the surfaces of the joints are free from flash/sprue bumps. If you prime before assembly, try to give the joint surfaces a once-over with an Emory board or light sandpaper.

I use the Revell plastic cement, both versions (brush and the small pipes). No problems whatsoever. If it breaks later, it is not the glued joint.

Plastruct Plastic Weld works for me.

Tamiya liquid glue, which is also similar to Plastruct Plastic Weld, same compound as a base, Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), but both are more refined with a lot less odor.
