Scrub,
You don't have to follow the SPAD directions too closely. We don't seem to have the gutter pipe that they use in USA but you can make your own square pipe out of the corflute. Don't know where you are getting your 4mm corflute because most stuff I get is 3mm or 5mm. Use the smallest you can get for the wings and the thick stuff for the fuse. Either one for the elevator and rudder.
I use a hot glue gun to stick mine together mostly but it has limits. good for "butt joints" ie sticking things together at an angle eg 90*, but not good for gluing flat on flat. I suggest you poke little holes into the corflute where you want to glue it together as this gives it a good hold. Epoxy resin, like Araldite should work OK too. Also you can hold some things together with small cable ties which is a lot easier than glue and allows you to cut them open if you need to. I have built great flying wings using this method. Hope you have fun with your build

Well how do you attatch the fire wall then? Dad used to work as a bulder and i have a two foot high pile of the stuff. I pretty sure it is 4mm but it might be 5. Close enough any way. Would araldite work? I mix it on ice cream lids because it doesnt stick to the plastic. I used hot glue hor the airboat which is still yet to go so yeah.

I make pusher jets mostly so no firewall needed. but when i have used firewalls i glued two pieces of thin plywood together and cut it to fit inside the nose of the fuse. Then just screw it in from outside the fuse with a few wood screws. There are probably lots of other ways to do it. Look around the forum and you'll find lots of good ideas

If the glue doesn't stick to plastic remember to poke some small holes in the corflute and it will hold a lot better

you should look for more info about firewalls because I only know about electric and they don't weigh much
