One other note about CA glue. If you've never used it before, please try a small bit first. Many people, myself included can have allergic reactions to the fumes, sometimes pretty severe. For me, it knocks my sinuses out of whack for a day or so. Using a good quality respirator and adequate ventilation is a good idea until you know you won't be affected by it. They do make odorless CA, but I've found that you almost have to use an accelerator to get it to dry, and it costs 3 times as much as the regular stuff.

I build RC planes and have used a lot of CA, but lately have switched to Titebond, Gorilla Glue, and epoxy for 99% of my work just to eliminate the allergic reactions. CA is great, but I'll take the longer build times over a runny nose!
