Be careful where you use JB Weld on that Moebius Seaview. I used it to bond the long seams on my Gato and found that if the hull flexed (which your resin model likely wouldn't have done) the JB Weld had a tendency to crack. As Steve mentioned above, for styrene to styrene bonding you can't beat using a solvent welder such as Ambroid Pro Weld, which literally fuses the plastic together into a single piece. The resulting joint is as strong as or stronger than the original material.
I do use some JB Weld in places on my Seaview, but only as a seam filler after the bond has been made with the Ambroid. JB Weld works best as a primary bonder where there is a good amount of contact area, with no flexing.

Plastruct Bondene Solvent Cement is the same thing I believe. I see it in lots of on-line hobby sites, including Tower Hobbies. Unfortunately TH only sells in in a case 10 pack. Everyone else sells single bottles.
