Thanks in advance...
Avoid using epoxy when possible, it adds a lot of weight. Unnecessary weight is the last thing you want on a 3D plane.
My choices of glue for Epp plane are welder glue and foam-tac. If you insists on using Ca glue, Medium one is probably better than thin Ca glue to join wing halves. Regular Ca glue is safe to be used on Epp foam.
