Default oberto 1/12th scale

hi guys im building this as i love hydro hulls and very bored ! so i downloaded the scale schematics, printed them out, cut and taped together and started cutting balsa and stacking pieces. what is the best way to do this like 5 min 2 part with tape or like vises 30 min 2 part epoxies etc etc it looks pretty self explanitory yet i will be modding the canopy and hull to suit my likings just need opinions on gluing it together . and yes i will be glassing the lower hull before all is said and done.

Hi,

FYI: 5 minute epoxy is not waterproof and not nearly as strong as the 30 minute type. Never use 5 min epoxy for anything critical. It will eventually let you down.
