    ChocolateSpider (6 months ago) #20037386I have used E6000 glue and I personally have not had good results in figure repair with it.
    Here is my process for repairing these breaks. First you need to align the breakage point and find where to press them together that will best hide the fracture. This looks like a fairly clean break, so that should not be too hard.
    Second, just take a tiny drop of adhesive, have it cleanly spread across the breakage and firmly press the ends together and hold for about 20-25 seconds.
    I use Loctyte adhesive and that has a pretty strong bond on plastic.


    kyoshinhei (6 months ago) #20041492For repairs on figures I usually recommend Loctite precision www.loctiteprod... but any liquid cyanoacrylate glue should do (avoid gel!).
    Steps:
    - Since the broken piece here is very small do not put glue on it directly from the bottle or you risk putting too much.
    - Use something very thin, like a needle, and put a very small layer of glue on its tip. If the break is for example 5 mm long, put glue on 5 mm of the needle from the tip.
    - Press the needle against each side of the break to transfer some glue there.
    - Assemble the broken pieces together and maintain them until the glue sets (usually 10~30 seconds)
    Thing to watch out for:
    - The drop of glue that you put on the needle should barely make a bulge at the tip of the needle. If there is too much, soak up the excess with a tissue.
    - When you transfer the glue to the break, it should be really thin. You can tell that there is glue because the area gets shiny but there shouldn't be so much glue that it can amass as a visible droplet. If there is too much, wipe you needle clean with a tissue and approach form the break again to transfer the excess glue back on it.
    - Avoid having some excess glue squeeze out of the break and spread on the surface of the paint. If this happens, don't wipe it. The glue can melt the paint so if you wipe it you run the risk of leaving a skid mark. Just let it dry, it shouldn't be very visible anyway when dry.
