Thanks in advance...
What type of CA are you using? Foam safe CA does not work on EPP, if you want to use CA, you should use regular CA with kicker, medium would probably be best as epphobby says, but personally I would use UHU Por (or Welders if you are in the US.
Don't use regular CA on the tailplane though, as far as I remember, it is made of Depron.
