Types of Glue
Clear Rubber And Silicone CementsThere is a wide range of tube glues mainly intended for domestic use that are often branded as ‘All Purpose’ or ‘Universal’ glues. They generally dry clear and remain rubbery. The majority are solvent based, but there are varieties advertised as “safe for children” that do not contain any solvents.
PVA GlueThis is a thin water based white glue that dries rubbery. It has wide range of commercial and domestic uses. For example, in the construction trade it is often watered down and used to prime walls prior to painting. It is very popular in kindergartens and schools because it is ideal for sticking paper and card and safe for children to use.

White Glue / Woodworkers glueThis looks very much like PVA glue, being white and water-based but it is more viscous. It has limited use for most modelling applications, but is very good at bonding wood, so may be useful when making dioramas or bases. Some modellers use it to bond clear parts such as cockpit canopies. It may dry clear or white depending on the manufacturer.
