I prefer clear enamel, either Tamiya or Testors Acryl.

Depends upon the part and where it is to be attached!
Epoxy works great too as does superglue, whiteglue, doublestick tape and chewing gum.
Maybe more information is needed...

Jarius, What type of chewing gum? Double mint or Bazooka! :lol: . Clear laquer or enamel is what I use.
