Default Plastic cement waterproof?

Hey there,

I'm getting started on converting a revell type vii sub to a dynamic diver and i wanted to make sure that regular plastic cement (probably testor) is the right stuff to use for all the little bits and especially the two main halves. i prefer not having to mess around with epoxy for all the small detail parts. i also do plan to do a final clear coat of polycarb paint after its all good and one which should seal most of it up.

If anyone could verify that plastic cement is the right stuff for the job that would be great. thx

Yup, it's pretty waterproof. I've used Testor's cement for a while now without any problems, the cement actually softens the styrene and sort of enables the parts to be "welded" together from what I've seen.
