I agree with the advice given. I and my fellow club members build lots of wooden scratchbuilt models and use White Gorilla wood Glue as we can buy in 1 litre bottles. It's water resistant so needs to be sealed but we coat all our models with G20 pond sealer both inside and out so barring the odd accident the glue joints are protected. Sanding sealer or some of the other suggestions would work just as well.
Superglue is good for small fittings etc and sticks almost anything if degreased. Going back to my aeromodelling days we used to use a drop of superglue when joining stringers with white glue every so often. It set quickly and avoided the need for pins to hold the pieces in place.
Contact adhesive is brilliant if you are fitting thin laminated sheets over a large area ie a veneer on a cabin side etc. As others have said you don't have much wriggle room so everything needs to be correctly aligned.
I do miss the passing of the local model shop but there are still many very good shops around and it is up to us to support them or lose them.
Possibly the best advice is available at a local model club. The techniques are used by all modellers and most are willing to share their experience if asked.
Looking forward to seeing your build blog👍
