I had got a pm, asking for tips on gluing an old Skyraider, i thought i'd post it here as its like cleaning up an old Babe Bee, there's many different ways to do it, so i thought lets get some different ideas posted.
I think the Cox Skyraider (like Corsair, P-51, Helldiver, etc.) is a type of styrene and can be easily glued with model car cement, i like the liquid type to soften both edges up, and use small clamps to hold in place, pop cycle sticks also help to temporarily keep wing straight. If its not gonna fly and your looking for really clean repair for display only, thin CA works great as it doesn't take a lot and less likely to show.
