Well sometimes you just have to paint a small item, or even a large one before gluing it. Most of the stuff, if you're not careful will likely melt or eat the paint. I use regular revell modelling glue. Has anyone used a glue that doesn't damage the paint? Or is that simply a dream?

Well in my opinion a plastic glue which don't melt the paint doesn't exist.

You should use white glue or acrilyc glue but they don't bond as strong as the platic glue.

you can also use CA glue but even if it doesn't melt the paint, it can ruin the painted surfaces. Furthermore ca glue dry in a little time so you couldn't have enough time to place your parts carefully....

In my humbe opion the only way is scraping the paint from the surfaces that you are going to glue. And of course you should be very careful when you aplly the glue on them

I'd recommend Jet Glue

It doesn't melt any parts but is also pretty good with paint. But it does stick hard and fast!
