I also recommend gluing the joints on the tail where the foam is joined. Finally, putting some adhesive silicon in the joints in the fuse and wheel well is not a bad idea either as I've had some water seepage if you are flying off water. Have fun with it as its a great flying airplane.
I do not know how, but the fairing in front of the prop (if you notice the prop), it did not go through the prop... How did it miss... don't care.. It did not sink and our boat went out on the lake to retrieve it.
