Default Repair suggestions - HELP!!!!!

A few days ago I picked up an old Simprop Sukhoi park flyer.

Well, I got it all charged up and balanced, and proceded to hand launch it right into the ground, twice.

On the second crash, the landing gear took the hit at a bad angle and basically broke the plane in half from the cockpit foreward.

The damage was to the balsa battery box, and the foam cowl.

I have a little experience with balsa, but this is my first foam model, so I have no idea how to repair the fuselage.

I appreciate any help or tips you can give me. Thanks.

1/2 hr. Epoxy will work good on balsa and foam, also aliphatic resin wood glue would also work.

I bought some of that wood glue and foam safe CA yesterday, now I just need to take the time to put the pieces back together and keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks.
