As mentioned several times it depends on the situation. plastic to plastic I use either testors liquid glue or Texan and similar types of glues for all other types of bonding that does not involve clear parts I will usually use Bob Smith CA or an epoxy. I have recently started to use canopy glue for any joint that involves clear parts. so far I have had excellent luck with it as it drys clears and is easy to clear if you get any on the part.
I will most likely be picking up the Blancpain version whe it comes out. I am sure someone will come along with decals eventually, i know someone has a set out already, can't remember who, just not fond of the paint scheme on that particualr set.
I have gotten off to a slower start than I expected, but that is ok.
First off Since the satin chrome will have to be stripped off most of the parts I have started the process of painting spoons with various shades of alclad to see which one most closely resembles the factory color.
I'm not one for following the directions in order, I like to get all of the major body components out of kits and assemble them as far as I can prior to paint to make final assembly easier, so I cut the fenders off the sprue as well as the tank pieces. I assembled the tank after after a rough cleaning which the fenders got as well, I will be going back later to smooth out the sanding scratches prior to primer
Next I Assembled the frame with all the pieces that will be painted the same color, following that I started on the engine. I only completed the first couple steps of engine assembly as there are several and each fin of the cylinder is an individual piece that will be painted chrome followed by black to get the right effect, I expect the engine to take some time.
And of course I had to put it together for a quick mock up.
