Type of glue.....

Yes, epoxy adhesive on the fiberglass used on the SM fuselages should work fine if you are attaching wood formers and such.
I use a 15 or 30 min epoxy depending on the length of time I need to fit the part. It seems that the longer the "set" time the stronger the joint.
Or it could just be me!!
You can use a bit of CA (super glue) to tack pieces in place and go over the joint with epoxy for the strength.
