Hi Jim
If I'd been building around '70, it would have been with Humbrol balsa cement. Which, oddly enough, was made in my home town of Hull, on the east side of England.

Now I chew yellow wood glue off my fingers... Some things don't change!

Interesting concept of skinned foam wings being better than a semi-open wood frame. There's been many arguments about which is the 'best', for sure. Recall one mag article that touted the full open frame with turbulator spars, like the beloved Four Star series. Must confess to not having that many skinned foam wings, and one of them was a somewhat non-aerobatic parasol with a well engineered folding wing that was great for putting the model into the car.

The Kaos is a good looker that flies well too, as many owners like yourself tell. I hope mine gets up somewhere near it.
