Default What are the essentials for Foam Construction?

I am wanting to gear up and start making Foam Planes with Dollar Tree foam board. Is there a thread that lists what all would good to have in my Build Box? I would like to just order all the stuff on Amazon and get it in all at once and start. I am working on plans in AutoCAD for my first plane. So far all I have if foam and a Harbor Freight Exacto Knife set.
Things like tape, what type glue, etc...

I will start...
I search the Internet and found someone who recommended "Elmer's Rubber Cement" to laminate layers of foam board.
For gluing edges together they recommended "White Gorilla Glue"
I will continue to make a list of items to put in my box and post the items here. I hope that what I plan to use if not appropriate (or if there is a better choice) Somebody will let me know.

Here I what I got from Dollar Tree today:
Clamps
Metal Straight Edge
Metal Square
Foam Board
Sharpie Pens
Wood Dowels
Tape Measure
Razor Blades
Bag of Rubberbands
Popcycle Sticks
Large Tube of Super Glue
Clear packing Tape
Toolbox for Items
Hot Glue Sticks
