It's too bad that we can't have CA that allows for a setting time of a minute say.
The thicker CAs are slower.  Also the polystyrene foam compatible ones are slower.
Zap makes a slow CA (thick stuff) which gives about 30seconds working time.
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Was about to say similar to NinOz, Zap make slow-zap that sets slower giving a bit of time to position.

On something like that I usually make a little puddle on some scrap, dip the end in and then poke it into the holes and hope I get it aligned right quickly.

One of the chaps at railway club had some glue that doesn't set until you waft a UV light at it where it then sets very quickly so it only sets when you're ready for it to do so.

Thank you for your replies.

The stuff I'm using is Zap medium viscosity. It has some nice properties such as it runs into cracks, but the setting speed is problematic for some applications. The suggestion of using the thicker Zap is a good one and one that I had forgotten about as is the special polystyrene version. Maybe I need to buy a couple more bottles of this stuff and use the different types for parts of the model.
