Depends on the component, ….CA is fast, but it’s also very brittle when cured, and doesn’t have a whole lot of strength, in addition, it can leave a white flash stain as it leaches across the repair area,…..JB quick is a good choice for decorative parts that need a decent bond. Another good choice are the varieties of 5 minute epoxies. All have short work times, so plan your repair accordingly, ……even small doses of any 5 minute glues can begin to lock up in 3 minutes,……

I agree with Pat on this, but I use epoxy with a 30-minute curing time. For a small part, I mix the resin and hardener and wait five or ten minutes until it begins to gel and get tacky, then apply a dab to the part. I've re-attached small parts to Sunset/3rd-Rail brass models this way. If the part is bigger, I apply the epoxy sooner.
