I have several wood car kits from LaBelle I will start on soon. I am looking for recommendations for assembly glue. I used cyanoacrylate glue on my RC models. It sets quickly, is strong, it comes in several drying speeds and there is a "dissolver" available if you make a mistake:eek:. Is this recommended for wood train car models? If not, what do you recommend? Thanks.

A good white glue like Elmer's or a good carpentry glue is what you'd use. You attach metal and plastic detail parts with a gap filling CA glue gel.

I'll echo Shay's comments.

As a side note (though not really pertaining to your model building), I use polyurethane glues for general wood working, most commonly via Gorilla Glue. Very strong bond strength. You have to dampen the mating surfaces with water slightly before applying the glue. The water kicks off a reaction with the glue ... strong and 100% waterproof when cured.
