You may use epoxy or Superglue (cyanoacrylate). If you're feeling really brave you can solder the brass parts together. That will take great care and a good heat sink.

Welcome to Aeroscale.

To attach PE parts I've struggled at times with extra thin CA glue. I tend to use regular or even thick these days, and now use an accelerator, which really has helped. At 1st I just sprayed it, but it makes a mess, and at times has left a residue. Now I "pump" some into a plastic jar led, then apply with a brush. Works nicely & neatly for me.

5 min epoxy on larger parts works well.

Hi, Dears!
Thanks for your fast and prompt reply!
Actually I've glued with cyanoacrylate the wing, but it is NOT perfect... And also continue to detach even after glueing...
It should to be soldering, but so delicate and thin...???
