A buddy of mine has extensive experience with plastic models including resin.
He told me all 3 liquid plastic cements from Tamiya work.
The Orange-cap regular, the Dark green cap Ultra Thin, and Light green cap Fast-Drying Ultra Thin.
Try those. Any good hobby shop will have at least 2 out of 3.

I keep all three on hand, along with Tenax 7R, Micro Mark "Same Stuff", Plastruct Bondene, Plastruct Plastic Welder, and "old school" Testors Liquid Plastic Cement (which is a 50/50 mix of MIBK and MEK).
I also keep vintage tube-type Pactra plastic cement on hand.
I'm well situated to bond all plastics.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.
