Dear Usher,
I believe Tacky is a white glue. You will need a solvent-based plastic cement or a CA.
Have fun!

Aileens tacky glue is best suited for gluing buildings down to the layout, gluing figures, scenery,vehicles and accesories down...but not for holding buildings together.....take b-manns advice and use solvent type glues or ''super glue'' [CA], i use Ambroid proweld or Tenax7 liquid glues...best thing out there for styrene, Testors tube glue works but it's messy and takes a long time to dry.

In the November 2007 they had an article about building weathered structures and the modeler used Tacky Glue.

I've found over the years that pllastic gl;ue works best on plastic (duh!) and Elmer's [carpenter's] wood glue for actual real natural wood (duh, again). And the best for paper and cardboard is probably rubber cement, although it can be messy, and you need to folow the protocol of letting it dry somewhat (maybe five minutes) before you press the surfaces together. White glue works, but gets lumpy unless you are very, very careful.

Aileen's Tacky Glue, however, is indispensable when you need to glue different materials to one another --- wood to plastic, resin-cast buildings to foam ground, and like that. CA ("Super Glue") is good for tiny stuff, where a dab is all you have room for, and for attaching metal to plastic, say. But I find it's a bear to handle.
