Does anyone have any suggestions about what kind of adhesives to use when making objects like the ones depicted in my pictures?  I've been using E6000 but find it increasing difficult to work with especially when I'm working on small, detailed creations.  It's great for gluing big gears together and affixing things to bases, but for delicate work it is less than ideal.  I've been very unhappy with the last few things I've made because they just look "sloppy" and I just can't clean them up properly.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I feel like taking my little VW Beetle apart and starting all over again - or maybe just starting a new one.  If you don't understand what I'm talking about just take a look at that picture for an example.

I am most gratefully yours,

Steampunk Grandma
