I realise that this is probably (almost certainly!) going over old ground for the nth time, but my last wooden model was in the days of Cascamite, and things appear to have moved on a tad since then so I need advise on which glue to use on my newly acquired Aeronaut Jenny. It says in the manual to use 'quick setting , waterproof, white glue' which sounds like a PVA glue to me but I could very easily be wrong.
I would therefore be grateful for any advise going re types of glue, and their trade names, if possible.

Hi Chris.
Like yours, my very first wooden boat was held together with Cascamite.
I'm very happy to recommend Titebond 2, it's an aliphatic resin that's waterproof, dries very quickly and forms a very strong bond on wood to wood joints.
I have used it extensively in the construction of my crash tender project.
The other glue I have used is Z-poxy 30 minute epoxy resin, great for wood to metal and various other materials.

I hope that is helpful.

Hi Robbob,
Thanks for the reply. If these are good enough for your build then they are certainly good enough for mine!
