Was this an RS commission build?

That's right, you did mention in the past. So is it a trimmed kit and needs to be assembled, or did Mark commission build it and it doesn't quite fit?

So are the limbs too long or too large in circumference? this will determin how much work is needed to get the fit right. Also dependent on the strapping as to how it sits on you torso.

E6000 is a pretty good all purpose adhesive but a bit hard to come by unless you buy it online. I put mine together with with Zap-a-gap but it's a bit brittle at times.

If its a full resin kit, Use epoxy, like 5 minute Araldite. If you want things to well and truly stay in place pin as many of the parts as you can. You can use a wire coat hanger and cut it up for the pins. There are many good build threads on FISD and a on here for you to reference.
You can make a stencil of the bottom of all the parts for your reference holes for the pins so everything lines up nicely.
Most of all, have fun, I found it very enjoyable building the Doopys kit.
