Hi Bob and [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
to the forum.
A few photy's of your boats would be good, I like to see what other folk like and build in case I fancy having a go. It's always good to see what techniques others use, perhaps you may consider putting up a build thread for your next project for us to follow.
I'm fairly new to model boats myself, completed one, now working on second and third and am thinking of building a paddle steamer next.

Welcome Bob we're a friendly bunch here.
I like Revell contacta glue for plastic, polystyrene and PVC. Super glue works too if the section is not subject to flexing.
Ask away you'll get prompt answers if we can and will look them up if we can't.

I would second Damien on the Revell glue, or any of the liquid polystyrene glues - Humbrol, Plastic Weld, etc. I use Superglue for plastic to fibreglass or wood.
