Bummer about the glue issues.
If it helps with alternative options I have been using Krazy Glue gel and it seems to be more forgiving time wise than the Loctite I also used. I have maybe 6-7 seconds of adjustment with PLA joins and then hold it in place for another 15-20 to let it set. Not sure how fast it reacts with resin. The bond is maybe not quite as strong as the more liquid and faster setting super glues but it works well enough for display models.
More practice with your new paints? Not that I think you need it. The paint job looks great.
Didn't IG-11 wreak a couple storm troopers and one of their speeders? (Ranks as a best scene ever!)
So... new addition to the background of the display?
No way Gorilla glue will work with Resin (I know, 'cause the Wife learned new swear words) Hagoth is right: gel crazy glue is much more forgiving. Looking good, btw...eager to see it all set-up!!
And a very nice display it turned out to be! Great job on this! The ability to turn liquid resin into something this cool, in the comfort of your own home (or shop) is just amazing to me.
Looks like there is room to move everything a little forward...
...and put a smashed speeder with a storm trooper laying across it in the back left corner. Not necessary but it would be a fitting addition.
