Yeah, we in Europe have different brands but typically use
- UHU Por as a direct equivalent of the Welders
- BSI Foam-Cure - silicon based, works very well I was told
- Purex - this is probably a Czech special - kinda yellow "honey-like" glue originally for wood, makes a foam-like joint when it hardens, fills gaps really nicely. but it gets yellow on the sun.

I have used UHU Por for all EPP-EPP joints, and Super-Thin BSI InstaCure with kicker in small drops to fix the UHU Por before it hardens, and Medium BSI InstaCure for all carbon/EPP joints.

Have been told that for quality EPP used in TH models the CA glue does not have to be declared as foam-safe. (and the Instacures are not declared as foam-safe and worked very well).

Over here UHU Por is sold as UHU Creative for a ridiculously inflated price.

I use medium CA on my TH planes now. Much less mess and waiting than Welders or the like.

Thanks guys as I wasn't sure about Welder glue as I have never used it. I have used Goop before which is a silicone type glue so I guess its somewhat the same as Welder. Regular CA good to use or do I need foam safe CA as I'm still learning which foams can use what types of glue. Thanks, John

Regular CA is fine. I use it for some bits of the aircraft but UHU Por for all the main joints.
