    I read somewhere on TFW about this stuff being great for custom work, and managed to get my hands on some...but it appears to be rated for wood, metal, ceramic, but nothing about plastic. I'm trying to do a repair(specifically on Perfect Effect's PE-RC figure), and I want to make sure I do it right.

    Thanks, though that doesn't answer the current question of how well the "5 minute epoxy" works^^; I'll try and get my hands on some of the Plastic Welder though
