    Hey guys
    Got my first fiberglass JP yesterday. One question... the rocket is resin and in 2 pieces. I want to attatch the 2 pieces. What kind of adhesive would I use on resin?

    Ever heard of gorrilla glue? once you glue something together you cannot get it apart, I used it for armor magnets to attach them to the chest armor and they will not budge.

    you also might want to drill a hole into each piece and glue in a rod of some sort to strenghten the joint. That way you'll have some defense against low doorways.
