Thanks; this an extremely difficult kit; now that I've applied the Primary, all the CA excess used gluing is visible!
well, at least in the enlarged photos...

I haven't used it - I usually use zap thin https://zapglue.com/ca,
I decant an amount and dip the railing in the glue rather than apply directly to the deck and then place - but I am no expert - I have also seen people use PVA - there a lot of videos on youtube now for the 1/700 builds so you may gte some good tips by looking at them.

Yes, that's how I applied it; but I'll have to be extra careful because of the very small size of the parts...

Great so far. Eager to see more. There are a lot of different method to glue Pe parts. Personally I never using PVA. To my experience its not strong enough.

I only got the idea from Scaleaton on his recent submarine diorama build - I thought at the time it was a strange choice but he was probably conscious of damaging some paintwork

Thanks guys; I have both CA and PVA based "Ultra Glue" from Ammo; I prefer CA; the problem is after you prime the surface even the smallest overspill of CA becomes visible because the parts are so small (1:700); the same happens with PVA based glues; and then, of course, I mean visible under a magnifying glasses or a macro picture from your phone; in any case, I don't like to see it, I'll improve the next time, make sure to use the tiniest amount of CA and cleaning with a dry tissue any overspill...
