I nornally use a ca glue, gap filling, thick, 10-20 dry time. I would not solder at all. Too many thin pieces. The blue points are very few on a base. I've pinned a few pieces before.

A few others should chime in on this topic

I just glued together about half of the guns I received yesterday. I used a superglue, CA (cyanoacrylate) type. Same kind dano is suggesting above. This is what I use for all of my metal to metal, and metal to resin (metal to skin ouch!) gluing.


On another vein, I found it necessary to "trim" a little bit off the 100mm gun axle. Also I had to "dig" out a hole for the German 105's wheel to attach to. It had a little nubbin at the axle to attach with, but no little nubbin hole. Those were the only guns I have so I don't know if there are any other tricks to the rest of them.

Oh yes...as Pletch suggested, I also use a small hand drill for the wheels etc. I think I will try and use the green stuff as suggested.

I use the gel super glue and it works fine. For extra strength I started using 2 part epoxy glue. The wheels flew off just as easily when dropped so I switched back to super glue with reinforcements.

To know it you can solder the minis you first must know the melting points of both the solder and the lead and unsure that the melting point of the gun is higher than the solder.

Basing should help protect the mini but I would reinforce it anyways just to be safe.
