Gluing

Ugh - cardinal sin of building with LEGO. However, the Indianapolis Children's Museum is reaching out to our LUG for building some models for them as part of their upcoming LEGO exhibit. They have three models they'd like built (car, boat, plane), that would essentially be props handled by some "actors" in their exhibit. They really want to make sure the models aren't constantly falling apart and needing repair as they are being handled. So they've requested they be glued. I'm just not familiar with the gluing process and issues (what glue to use, what tools/techniques, how much time to allocate, and what problems arise when needing to unglue to fix/modify a model). Anyone with experience here who can suggest approaches?
