i mostly use a wood glue....ca for tacking .....and epoxy when i get tired of watching the wood glue dry........

your plan looks good....use a slow set epoxy when joining the wings....it seems to soak in a little better and IMHO is stonger than say a 5 min epoxy.....also i would use the os .10 for a little more get up and go.

hope this has helped......

post a build log....or put it in here...

I just finished the vertical tail fin and used the heat gun to take the wrinkles out of the wing. Here are some pictures of the tail and wings.
