Laminating plastics

Hi Guys

What glue should I use for laminating plastics when constructing buildings? I used a locally made (UK) solvent glue called plasticweld but this seems to be causing my walls to warp, gets worse the more detail I add to the building. I am laminating plastic brick paper to plain plasticard. All my mouldings etc are plastic strip that I then glue in place on the wall

It seems that warping Plasticard has been a problem as long as Plasticard has existed.
That's why Ken Ball developed his method of using double sided adhesive tape to laminate the layers (as outlined in his excellent book "Modelling Buildings The Easy Way", published by Cheona Publications)

I've been using this method ever since I first read about it, so I get no warping problems now.
