Default Setting up the Incidence

Curious about a couple things , first one is pretty straight forward, what do you guys use/reccomend to sheet a foam wing>(What type of Glue?)

Second one is a little bit more involved. Incidence of the wngs/stab.
I am building my first pattern plane, (Dash Five) It calls for an 0" degree incedence. I have after gluing the heck out of it, LOL .
minus -1/2' or slighty less. If I leave it and make the wings a minus equal to the stab., is that ok because they are relevent to each other, and what would the end result of flying the plane be, would it be a handful, more gentile or just plain off base. The datum line could be off that little bit also so im not really sure if I should tear it down again or just go with it. I heard somewhere that 1/2 a degree is negligable but hey this is why I joined the formum. Lots of helpful advice. What would you guys do , I did my best to level the whole plane too. so its based off a level datum line. Thats correct right? All my planes in the past , werent so neccesary of being 100 percent. mostly arfs and a few easy kits, and the cut out for the stab was pretty much there ahead of time. This bird makes you do the work.

Thanks, Willygog

If it's already epoxied in place, I would Leave it alone. That little bit of difference can be corrected with trim
