The plane is all most completely built and my fear is all the other joints are at risk of being brittle. I'm more fearful because of the Minimag book saying, "DO NOT use styrofoam cyano".
Help please, this is my 1st build!

You have to work on those reading comprehension skills BEFORE you build. You probably are not the first person to use the wrong glue. Your options are to do nothing and fly it; buy some medium or thin CA and inject it into all the glue joints; throw the plane away and start all over again with a new kit and the correct glue. Maybe someone who did the same thing you did with Foam Safe CA can add real data.
