Yeah, small and I still can't find good Superglue for that. Once try a Tamiya one, but it’s almost do not glue something that not laying on flat ground. Now using Revell, and not to satisfied. I wonder, which glue they using, then making promotional photo of PE on model, that it's don’t even seen.

can you order from the internet? This link is just one example of a source:

https://www.amazon.com/Pacer-Technology-Zap-Zap-Adhesives/dp/B00SXJJ2QI/ref=sr_1_1/161-0071743-5511676?ie=UTF8&qid=1484857251&sr=8-1&keywords=zapagap+glue

you probably want to get a "kicker" also. The chemical that makes CA glue dry immediately.
this is a link to that product. Its a small mist bottle. I bought a "refill" bottle becasue when you spray it it goes all over everything. I put a small amount in a medicine cup and put a Q-tip in it. That way I can drop some of it on a glued part w/o getting the kicker all over the rest of the model.

https://www.amazon.com/Pacer-Technology-Zap-Kicker-Pumper/dp/B000H7H4OQ

One other product that is relatively new is a resin glue that is bonded by UV light. It does not "stick" until you apply the UV light. The AD in the link below shows the pen that dispenses the resin and emits the light. Its more expensive but may be the best option for small and tiny PE

Bob has demonstrated the Laser Bond system in his video build of the helicopter he is working on now.

Actually, I'm a "relic"--LOL.........I am fortunate to have a LHS that carries virtually every brand of glue commonly used my scale modelers. Its easy to walk in a see the entire "system" that a company makes. I am seriously going to get the laser Bond system when I get a hobby space back.
