Default rebuild glue? whats better

I have a plane that took a dirt nap and the fuse is broke almost all the way in half. This is just behind the wing. Witch is better to use to fix this CA or epoxy. I'm going to need to build some braces so I'm thinking epoxy. This will be my first big rebuild. This is a plane I kit built so I know how it went together so maybe that will help.

How about a picture to see the damage? I would be using epoxy or yellow glue myself depending on how extensive the rebuild would be. You are probably going to have alignment to deal with so I would want something a little slower in set to allow more time to position parts correctly.

There is no blanket, "Best Glue". You may have to stick some of the little pieces together with CA, and then use epoxies or Titebond on other places. What did you use to build it with in the first place? If it's an ARF, they probably used hot melt to assemble it, so you are going to need to post photos of what you are wanting to fix, or better, find an old fart builder and get his advice.
