With plastic injection kits form Bandai, I find CrazyGlue to be sufficient.
When you glue the parts together, you can sand of the excess before the
glue completely dries, and the particles will fill in the gap. Since Bandai
Gundam kits have parts that fit together better than aircraft or tank kits,
I never ran across gaps so huge that this method wouldn't work.
