    5-minute epoxy will work just fine, but make sure you rough up the styrene first.

    Exactly. I rough up the styrene and get some mesh and glue the mesh to the bondo and epoxy the styrene to the mesh. At least that's what I did when makeing corrections to the 350th TOS, it's held up for 6+ years now

    Well.... rough it up with some sandpaper use thin layers, or better yet, if it's that small use 3m spot-putty.
