Hello everybody,

Quick question here, I've been repairing a few of my minis but I am having trouble getting the pieces to stick together. I've been using Testor Liquid cement for plastic models, which I have used for Warhammer minis with no problem, but with my super dungeon explore minis haven't been sticking together very well. Am I doing something wrong? Perhaps I am using the wrong sort glue? any advice would be helpful thanks!

I've always used standard super glue and have had no problem.

^^Scotch super glue or Kragle (Krazy Glue) have both worked just fine for my minis.

SDE minis are not made of the kind of plastic that reacts with plastic glue.
Plastic glue initiates a chemical reaction when it touches (the right kind of) plastic which melts/fuses the two parts together.

So yeah, use regular "all purpose" super glue.

When my Starfire's wings fell off, I had to pin them. It's a little time-consuming but not especially difficult. And then, yeah, super glue. I use Loctite Gel super glue and I am a big fan.
