I have had various problems, including warping, when using solvent type glue. When laminating surfaces I use CA glue rather than solvent type glue. I use a surface plate or piece of plate glass to set up the parts on and then wick in the CA and follow with zip kicker. Works for me in making styrene patterns in the past.

Wana go to Cuba?

Yes, I do sand the styrene. I like sanding foam from Home Depot. I've not joined anything that big but would not hesitate at trying it. There a few options including slow set CA. Much depends on precisely the shapes being joined. CA has been more reliable for me than solvent and sets up quicker.
