I want to cover the plywood deck with 0.5mm plasticard. What type of adhesive should I use please?

Hi Steve
My entire model has been constructed using the following three glues:

Poundlands version of no more nails
Poundlands superglue 8 pack
West system epoxy
All have stuck plasticised to plywood in some fashion.
Two are £1 each and the west system cost me £20 for a patch repair kit.

Hope this helps
Graham

Hi Graham
Thank you. It's amazing how the apparently cheap and cheerful stuff works.
Since my original post I have been trying Wilko's Heavy Duty All Purpose adhesive. It's a spray on contact adhesive and costs £5 for a 500ml can.
Tests show that it sticks like the proverbial and doesn't affect the plasticard.

I've been impressed with the Poundland glues, my project is nearing completion and with bargains like this and scratch building all the detail I have stuck to and come in under my build budget of £150...
