    Can you post some pics of the parts you are using? If they are all plastic parts, use plastic glue epoxy to spot weld the parts together. First spot it because if you don't get it right the first time , it's easier to take apart. Then i would use the Bondo Fiberglass Resin Jelly. It is very good for strengh. Then sand. Then use the Bondo filler. Again sand, sand, sand! If you never done this before, I would not start with out some practice. You need to know how to mix the Bondo and hardner together just right. If you put too much hardner, it will harden very fast and you won't have alot of time to work with it. On the other hand, too little hardner and it won't dry or harden. Just my two cents

    Use this first to put everything together.

    then go over it with regular bondo to smooth everything out. and remember do alot of sanding to get it prefectly smooth.

    if you want a stronger bond, I suggest using epoxy to hold the two pieces together, then go over it with bondo.
