One of the best glues are two part epoxies. They are very strong, impact
resistant and hold up well and can fill gaps. If your parts are not
mated correctly (i.e. there are chips missing) a model glue may not work
well. To keep the seam small, just apply consistent pressure for the
cure time. A fast cure epoxy will set up in 5-10 minutes.
