Ray are the glues you mentioned comparable to Tenax 7R which has the chemical reaction to styrene that welds or melts the two together. This is what I have used. I'll have to try your stuff too, I like the option of the thicker glue.
This is coming along nice. I like to not look for awhile then let it all sink in. I like the structural of the foot boards. I seen some large scale guys use the plastic band straps that are used around boxes for foot boards. When it's painted it looks just like the real material. The body work you done on the boiler is awesome.
I have several HO scale Rivarossi loco's made in Germany. Their very heavy but good torque & nice detail. I have always been a fan of the steam era amazing machines in their day. One of my other fascinations with these are the Tenders. A lot of people ignore them but there are many designs for not only the engine but for the local. One of my favorite tenders is the Vanderbuilt, do you have any of those? You got me wanting to unpack some of my engines just to look at them
