anyone tried it?

DS has a huge Lego Star wars Model for his birthday and I am tempted to glue it together as its made. All his other pieces have fallen apart within minutes of being played with and the pieces mixed together, probably never to be made again.
What do you think?

I would use the stuff modelmakers use. It's an epoxy resin that slightly melts the plastic to form a good bond. My husband used to use it, but can't remember the exact name - I think araldite?

you will have to be careful.... one mistake and you're stuck....if you pardon the pun :)

no seriously make sure you have all the correct pieces and is built correctly.

Sounds a good idea but I would not recomend araldite. Probably best with airfix type glue ?
