Are you asking about Gorilla Glue's CA or just regular Gorilla Glue? The regular glue is activated with water and then expands to fill pores in the materials therefore isn't suitable for plastic kits. The CA however is quite good.
Oops. Oh, well it'll buff out...maybe...

I've been using their brush and nozzle super glue on my current project. Buy the five minute set time, not the quick grip. I have found that with gorilla glues there is NO fudge room. If you don't get the delayed kick glue, you have one shot at getting the piece where you want it. No shifting in place. Use it VERY sparingly, a little goes a looooooooong way.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Exactly. I know you'd never get the mileage you do from the Gorilla glue, but if you need a slow setting super glue, I always go with Duro, superglue gel. That's my go to, next is Gorilla brush and nozle super glue (the brush is way huge though!) and if it's plastic to plastic, good old Testor's gap zapper.
