Why not use a 5-minute epoxy - this is by far my favorite glue type to use on resin kits.

a good 5 minute epoxy is much better choice.

Quickplastic is very easy to sand, and is carveable the rest of its life, but will not adhere very well to plastic. I wouldn't use it to hold 2 parts together. Aquamend, is a bit harder to sand, but still not bad. After about 2 days its really hard to carve, but bonds to most plastics I have used it on, so It will hold large parts together really well.
If I have to make 2 large piece of resin stick, what I do is use the Aquamend for the center, then just lay some Quickplastic around the edges, and that takes care of all the problems. I have the bonding properties plus I can sand/carve where I need to with no problems.
I forgot to mention, they are sold in "tootsie roll" form, meaning both parts come rolled in one tube, all you simply do is cut the piece you want and mix, no need to measure. When mixed, you get the consistency of clay and about 10 minutes of work time.

Yeah, I would have assumed the 2 part putties wouldn't have been too good as glues, in my experience milliput is a great filler but a terrible adhesive.
Out of curiosity, what the hell is this gorilla glue stuff ?

Best choice I've found is Epoxy and pinning. Super Glue becomes very brittle over time and will break under light impacts that wouldn't seperate epoxy, even if the joint is pinned.
