75192 UCS millennium falcon

I have a question for everyone that wants to chime in. I am planning on mounting my falcon to a piece of plexiglass and hang it from the ceiling in my man cave in the house. The question is do I glue the model together or not? It is currently assembled and I have built brackets for the legs to set in. I am sure I will never disassemble it but I am on the fence about glueing the model it self. Also would you glue other sets as well? mainly things that i know i would never disassemble again.

    That would adversely effect the resale value if you ever needed to sell the set at some point in the future.  And unless you're fine with not being able to recoup that value - then I would maybe consider only gluing some of the detail pieces on the outside of the model.  (And getting duplicates of those particular pieces and setting them aside with the paperwork.)

    Frankly, if the set were brittle or flimsy, I can understand the concern, but she's a beefy gal that is constructed pretty well.  

    And if you're afraid of damage or dropping the set - glued together pieces still break.  If that were to happen, you're much better off having the set shatter in a million pieces (unglued) than literally break glued-together pieces.

    (I had a Red Baron that I once experimented Kragling, and between the wings and stickers - never again!)

    The only other thing I can think of is getting a hold of a Lego Display that is already glued. 

    I agree with @SumoLego ; I wouldn't glue your model, it should hold up well enough.

    Also, think about the time you will need to glue it. I reckon it will take 4-5x longer to build it with glue if you are doing it neatly. What with the smell, it will become a chore and you'll hate it and see it hanging there as a reminder.
