attaching pe to plastic

sure you can use super glue, gator grip and all that good stuff. well try this, take a thin piece of styrene plastic, evergreen, brand glue it to the pad or feet of the pe part, you can shape to it the outline of the part even thin it down then you can use liquid cement to attach the part. leave a bit of the plastic overhanging and a bit more liquid glue and you can work the plastic to look like weld seams

I do that quite often if I like the P.E. part. More often than not now days I use the P.E. parts as guides to make replacement parts out of sheet plastic. To me it seems that most P.E. parts are just too 2 dimentional and either too thin or shaped wrong. Some of the P.E. coming out today though is quite nice.
