    Best adhesive for FP Gaunts

    Hello all,

    I'm about to tackle (finally) assembling and painting my FP ESB gauntlets. What do you guys recommend/use as an adhesive to attach the greeblies/rocket/etc.?

    Not got my set as yet, but I would like to screw fix the rocket ann any other sizeable section - thinking flamethrower unit and such. Small parts, for example dental expander, key pad, those greeblies, I would be thinking hot glue, super glue or two part epoxy glue.

    For the larger stuff like rocket/flamethrower/whipcord, I always epoxy bolts into those greeblies, then attach them to the gauntlets w/nuts from the backside. I like to be able to pretty much disassemble them if I would need to, (ie if I decided to do a repaint. ) I always use plastiweld as my epoxy of choice. Hot glue works well for the smaller greeblies.
