    I'm new to the forums and kitbashing. This is my first. This is all I have finished, until my apoxy sculpt comes. I have a little problem though, for some reason, when I superglue the NEO-Shifter pieces on the bots, the glues holds for a couple days and then breaks lose? I was thinking about adding a small screw+superglue on these pieces, what do yall think? I'll add more later on. I wanted to thank yourreflection for all his time and help on this project! If not for him, I'd be going through hell trying to do this.

    Sand the area to be glued a little with the ruff sand paper type,then use epoxy glue and not plain superglue.

    Cool, thanks! Is there a certain epoxy glue to get? I thought some of it ate plastic?

    I've been using Loctite 1-min epoxy I found at Target.
    Some glue will eat the plastic because of chemical heat created as it's trying to bond/cure.
