non-CA foam glue (GP extra 330SC)

I just don't need CA. I'm in no rush to get the model done, and it's a 3D foamie. I know I can use epoxy, but I don't want the fumes. How about clear/white gorilla glue? I can test it on scrap...

Trying to identify some rubber free flight models... for R/C of course.

I built my first authentic model plane several years ago, and I have no idea who makes it. I do not think it's a guillows. The fuselage is all sticks. Except for the ribs, dashboard section of the...
