I've built various Greenmax buildings and the plastic is very strong. Maybe was on a fragile zone? Maybe large windows... Is it beyond repair? If you post some pics maybe we can help on how to repair...

Could you post a pic? We can give some ideas on how to repair or replace the broken part so you can use the building.

Use less force when gluing together.  I find the quality no different than Kato's.  The only difference is Kato's come pre assembled.

Most of greenmax joints are not compression fit at all just a glue joint that is pretty loose. Usually have to glue then hold in place till the glue sets with tape, jig or by hand. I’ve not found many parts that need any real pressure while assembling other than just keeping the parts gently together while the glue dries.

And Kato’s plastic is easier to cut if you want to kitbash.
