Mark, I hear that Paleo Bond works well. A local model vendor I see
from time to time, showed me how he addresses that pesky issue of reattaching loose parts. He showed me how to repair a photoetched side moulding bulging out in the middle of a Kess '63 Impala:

1. Put a dab of Paleo Bond on the corner edge of a post it note (any small paper will do).

2. Slide the paper under the moulding to transfer the glue to the underside of the part..

3. Pull the paper away and press down on the moulding with your finger for a minute or so.

Result: The moulding is stuck in place with any bulges removed.

I subsequently searched the Net for Paleo Bond. It is used by archeologists, museum conservationists and other bone collectors and hobbyists to repair bones found at historical sites. It comes in a range of viscosities and is more expensive than many other adhesives. However, I have seen it at work and was impressed. Unfortunately, I don't know what viscosity my shop keeper used. Perhaps a call or e-mail to Paleo Bond suppliers would provide the answer.
