I did some research on how to deal with glue spots and staining but all the info I found was related to large scale or panel projects. I am having repeating issues with glue spots on the trucks I am building. What are some of the best practices for assembling and finishing toys/models to eliminate or at least reduce glue spots and get an even finish? I have seen conflicting opinions on staining prior to gluing. That method is what I have been thinking about trying next. The other question then would be which glue is best for detail parts? Wood glue, CA or something else. I would greatly appreciate any advice.

Use hide glue. If you use hot hide glue you will get the advantage of very quick tack and often not need clamps at all. The residue can be cleaned up with water and a scrubbing pad and won't block finishes. It is non toxic as a bonus. Liquid hide glue has the same advantages for cleanup but requires clamping and lacks the strong initial tack.

I did a blog about its uses and advantages here. It is about the only glue I use.
