Glueing blucore

I've seen a few threads about gluing blucore. Some have said no more nails works so I tried it. When I went to hotwire I realized that it doesn't cut very well, ruined my whole wing.
Hot glue cools too quickly, otherwise I would be using it.
So how can a glue blucore together so that it is still cuttable?

I've had pretty good luck with cheap elmers rubber cement. It hot wires fine. I get it at walmart most any craft store should have it.

I'll try that.
I asked at the hobby shop today and they said you can get the foam in up to 4" thick. Where can this be found? Lowes only seems to have 1/2"

The lowe's here has 3/4 and 1 inch in stock. They probably just don't carry it in the store but I bet you could order it online and have it shipped to the store for pickup.

Did you ask them if they could order it for you?

I went to Rona and they had it. I got my cores cut and the plane is coming along nicely.

Are there any good strategies for building fuselages?
