    WWII Thunderbolt plane

    My dad worked at Republic Aircraft in Evansville, IN during World War II. One of the planes they built was the Thunderbolt. When he left he was given a model of the Thunderbolt on a stand, including a pin attached to the front of the stand. Over the years, the plane has gotten damaged; rear flaps are off, and now it has broken in two. It is made of some kind of hard rubber. I have tried super glue and model glue, and neither of those will hold. Is there someone out there who restores these kind of things or could tell me a glue that might work? Thanks.

    You need to find a restoration specialist . More than likely they will need to drill holes to place some sort of support structure inside the plain to help keep it stay together. Look for someone who does Art Restoration ,and give them a call.
