I'm going salvo tanks onto a lightning blitz, and right now they are only held on with hot glue. I know that hot glue, in giant mounds, is pretty strong, but I'm looking for a little reinforcement.
I was wondering if anybody have a suggestion on what kind of adhesive to use to back up the hot stuff.

My standard for integrations is zap a gap bonding surfaces, epoxy gaps and around edges, then hotglue over that. Seems to work pretty well.

But if you already glued around the edges, you can't do much more. You're going to need to take it apart if you want anything stronger (worth it IMO).

Epoxy Putty makes it ROCK hard, and then epoxy for plastic's. You'll get a sure seal between the two, then plumbers goop if you require more, but that is kinda useless for this job.

I know it's not a great filler, but the gel type of Krazy Glue is extremely strong. I used it to glue a boltsled to a piece of CPVC on my LS. Works great.

Use some Plumers Goop first, then put some epoxy putty on. Best combo ever.

I use some glue that has a similar make-up to zap a gap, and then I put epoxy putty over that. It hasn't failed me yet.

You mean Fishin' Glue. And I personally like this stuff, it is easy to sand, and twice as strong as Fishin' Glue.

Yeah, that stuff looks pretty amazing. If I were you, Umpshapapla (sorry if I butchered your name) I would tack it with fishin glue/zap a gap, and then put this epoxy stuff that nerfnut is talking about over that. I don't think you want to hold your integration piece imobile for 30 mins for it to set. The fishin glue sets in 15 seconds, and it will hold the joint for the epoxy to work.

Don't worry about the name, most people online just call me ump. I have some stuff that's just as strong as fishing glue I think I'll try. Maybe even a little epoxy.

I mean that you can use clamps, then rubber bands to hold it while it cures, not sit with it for 30 minutes. It takes it 24 hours to cure, and half an hour to set a.k.a. hold the pieces in place.
