Wow, that's a fantastic idea, can't believe I never thought of that before, thanks mate! That would've helped so much in this situation, but going forward I will definitely use that method. Going run to the store today and get some Elmer's or tacky glue asap.The Empire thanks you for your dedication and service to their ships.
I know, pain in the butt to have to redo something over and over. But you'll get it and be thankful.
I've learned, sometimes you can use some white glue (Elmers) or tacky glue, or something thats not quite as strong but will hold it to get it set in place, then, later on, if I know its for sure good, then try and get some super glue on an area that should hold it together.
Won't work with all parts of course, but can help.
An example. Gluing the top and bottom of the Falcon I'm working on. I knew that trying to put super glue on all the pegs, edges and areas that needed to be glued, lined it all up before it dries to much, or I end up misaligning something and then having to rip it all back apart....and getting super glue all over my hands. You can see this type of thing has happened plenty times.
So using the tacky glue, which takes way longer to dry, gave me the time to make sure everything was lined up best I could get it, let it dry, and then add some super glue in the holes from the side docking area since that piece went on later.
