    I normally use a plastic specific glue from Testors but sometimes I use hot glue.

    Tamiya Modeling Cement. Probably not the best thing, but it's worked for me so far.

    I've used Loctite Super Glue Control Gel on all of my customs and WIPs so far. It works great and I haven't had any issues using it. I've also reinforced areas and filled gaps with ProCreate Professional Sculptors Putty when needed.

    If you use Loctite like Punk, the control gel's definitely the best choice in my opinion.

    But personally, i changed to using Zap a Gap exclusively a long time ago. It's incredibly plentiful around my area, and sticks tighter than anything else i've tried. I use CA+ because it's thicker, so it doesn't seep through as much.

    It's main downfall is that it sticks so tightly it often glues the nozzle shut as well. And i have cleaned off excess glue and the like.

    It depends for me.
    I've used Hot glue, superglue, mighty putty, games workshop green stuff & plastic weld.
    All of them work well for different things.

    On my older Razorclaw, i resorted to actually just putting a blob of Milliput on the part, and then pushing another part into that Milliput.

    Mind you, it worked like a charm. :D
