    I use glue from LMII. It's the best for not having a "hard line" glue joint.

  5. I know others won't agree, but I had great sucess with Gorilla glue. As long as the joints tight, no lines.

    Any glue works for that purpose.
    Less thermoplastic=less elastic, which usually means better - but only for joints under constant load. For body wings, that don't matter. PVa will do fine.

    On a somewhat related note, what kind of clamps (brands or size specifics would be helpful) are you guys using for this application?
