Try a good quality plastic model glue available at hobby shops. Overtime it might get brittle and when handled the model may loose some finiky parts. Be carefull for super glue as it discolour components especially the chrome or glass parts.

Liquid poly by Humbrol, or Tamiya's "paint-on" glue works well.  These glues surface-dissolves the plastic, causing actual "welding" of the two parts, and leave no affect on the material.

Worth it, long term especially, to get the right stuff.

Superglue is a no-no.

3-cylinder Honda NS500R,  1/8th scale, with steel frame, quite nice if I could only have built it properly.

This is the lot from me, almost all of these kits have been built long ago, and being a impatient person, not all the detail was put in before assembly. :lol8:

Time to start going through all of them to try improve authenticity.
