The instructions should tell you the types of glue you'll need, but generally you should stock up on thin, medium and thick CA, 6 minute and 30 minute epoxy, CA remover with a pumas stone to get it off your fingers, rubbing alcohol to remove excess epoxy, and lot of paper towels. I've never found that the brand makes much of a difference. Also, I've found CA applicator tips, epoxy mixing cups and brushes to be very helpful. Hope this answers your question.

Hi, I hope your not planning to use the plane as a trainer, Could be a problem. As far as glue, Expoxy is the heaviest,so use it only on load berring areas. If you have styrfoam, only use epoxy or wood glue.
