    What kind of glue does one use to put these models together. I currently use Tacky Glue.

    I use transparent PVA glue, also called here in Brazil as styrofoam glue. I've seen around here that many people use Tacky and UHU.
    IMHO, it all comes to how satisfied you are with what you're using, but running a few tests won't hurt, since you can get into situations where some sort of glue you're used to won't work well enough. :thumb:

    The two most common glues that most modelers use are either Aleen's Tacky glue or Elmer's Glue all (all purpose glue).

    If you are happy with what you are using and get good results, then there is really nothing to worry about.

    I Use Aleen's Quick set and fast dry, sometimes plain tacky for precise parts I still use CA. My next trip to Michales and I'm going to get a tube of Zip Dry and try it.
