im using humbrol liquid poly at the moment and tried the method of wicking the glue along the seam then pressing the parts together and welding them but i didn't get much melted styrene coming from the joint and it still left me with a seam after sanding so i might get a glue thats a little hotter and see if that helps.
I'm a convert to the Vallejo putty. Very easy to use, apply, wipe off the excess with a cotton bud moistened in water, and that's it. I would also suggest using some kind of plastic weld as opposed to regular cement, as this will eradicate most seams during the construction process. I'm using some EMA at the moment that i bought at SMW last year, having run out of Pro Weld, and I'm very pleased with it.

I've found this works well, as long as you're quick. There have been some reports that joints made in this way can react adversely after time - but I've not experienced this (yet)
