basic building questions for herr mini sport

I'm about to build my first non foamie plane. My wife bought me a herr engr mini sport. I've looked over the directions, and it seems pretty straight forward, but what type of glue do I use to build the plane. Do I use superglue, elmer's white glue, 5 minute epoxy or some type of special glue?

Hi Steven, get a bottle of thin and a bottle of medium CA. The LHS should have a good selection.

Also pick up a micro tip that goes on the nozzle of the bottle of thin CA.

Put some waxpaper over the plans, put the pieces over the waxpaper and apply the smallest drop of CA possible, letting it wick into the joint. If the drop is too big it will sit on the surface, any that doesn't wick in can be absorbed with a paper towel.
