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.

Epoxy to join the wing halves&engine mount .Thanks for any info from your experiences-Don
On small planes I use thin ca only...keeps the plane light! Epoxy is over kill!!!
