Model kit advice?

I am considering starting a resin model, however this will be my first time doing so. I have assembled models in the past so this is not completly new. My question is this....Do resin models require glue? I know they require paint, but what kind of paint exactly?

Having built several dozen resin kits (figures, aircraft, armor)... YES, you need glue.

I normally use Zap-a-Gap (Krazy glue). I've also learned to drill SMALL holes and use PINS (cut paperclips) to help hold parts together.

Resin normally requires MORE work in preparing to paint: filing, filling, and primer. But, I used a standard model primer (TESTORS), and either enamel or acrylic model paints (Testors, Tamiya, Polly-Scale, Floquil, etc)

GOOD LUCK and have fun !!
