I've had my hands on the glue, yay! And I've stuck bits together and I've also been doing the worst job to flippin filling, ah no though I've found a new filler, at least new to me, it's called "Perfect Plastic Putty" and I must say I'm liking.
It water based ( I think ) you simply blob some in the crack, gap or gash then with a damp piece of kitchen paper towel wipe it lightly let dry sand and repeat if necessary ( blimey I've got a nose bleed now) big words me, never!

When I apply the filler I seem to manage to get it just about everywhere :-(

And this is the filler if anyone is interested, that is if you haven't used it already ;-)
I need a lay down now

Looking good, have you painted the blue or did the kit come in that color?  That putty looks pretty interesting, I have not tried any water based putties but they do look  tempting.
Thanks for the info

Looking great! Thanks for the detail pics on your use of the Perfect Plastic. Chris recommended it a while back, and I got a couple tubes in the mail. Looks easy as pie to wipe off...man what a difference then the concrete I usually use!

The wood grain texture on the Tardis is pretty cool looking!
Boldly going...
