Bcool, Most guys use CA and epoxy... Epoxy is best in areas that will be attached to hard woods and plywoods (landing gear,firewalls). Its also best to use a slow epoxy when possible, Scuff up the ply or hardwood in the gluing area with a course sandpaper, or an exacto knife. This allows the epoxy to seep in and bite even better.

Some of us still use slow aliphatic/white glues as well. Gorilla glue FOR WOOD works well, and some of the newer titebond glues are used. I have been using titebond 2, but some people say the newer one is better...When building OLD SCHOOL with white glues you will be doing a lot more pinning clamping, and waiting (for glue to dry) But with multiple building boards you can keep busy !
