it can be done as long as there's not too much stress on the parts - you need to be very patient though for the glue to cure...

Take a look at these clips.

The first shows PVA (white glue) for wood to wood.

And the second shows the use of UHO for plastic to wood.

For the Plastic hull parts and the planking I use medium thick Superglue, no need for pins then. Only used PVA for the MDF frames.

UHU Power glue is no good for the Plastic Hull side we got, some will be under pressure and it says in the instruction to use the thick superglue, now hurry to Poundland you get the medium thick one with accelerator for a quid and it really is good.

Looking at the photo of the hull that's a major bend. :o

Myself I would look at trying to take the plastic parts back off, and see if the hull can be re-straightened. It might not be a easy job to do.

Do you have a long straight piece of wood of metal that you can place on top of the hull to see where about the bend could be, as the photo shows it as being bent from both the bow and stern.

Looking at the photo, I'm not sure you'll be able to without stripping some of it back in order to get to the root of the bend.

You might have to start again, if you can get the plastic parts off and the planking you might be able to heat the areas up and gently bend the parts back into line but I think that will be a tall order.

Here's a better angle? I can with care force it straighter? http://s1231.photobucket.com/user/chris ... sort=3&o=0

Not really sure how to help with this.

You could look and drilling a hole in the rear area that's bent say from the last rib (38,77) to rib (32,71). And adding a small threaded rod with some washers and nut on eitherside of the ribs. But this could break the rib joins to the keel section. When you try to straighten it back up.

Another way could be to cut some small square piece of hardwood just a little larger then the gap where the bend is, place them between the ribs this could then start to push the bend back out but again the ribs might not take it.
