One night, motivated entirely by a desire to give my son something lasting and permanent to ply with, I waiting until he and Connie were in be, poured myself a large Scotch, mixed together some Araldite adhesive in a jam-jar lid, laid the instructions before me and carefully glued together a pirate ship, a troll castle and an ambulance.
I wonder is Araldite is really the best glue for this. The character is a scientist so presumably able to tell the difference between different adhesives.
2-part epoxy glue strikes me as problematic, you'd be forever making new mixes in the jam-jar lid for a start. Building 3 models will take tame, and about half a bottle of Scotch, by which time you'll be high as a kite on the fumes.
Would a plastic cement be better? Presumably it would need to be an ABS one - Plastic Weld for example. Even then, you're going to have a hell of a come down from the effects if not working in a well-ventilated area.
