Where can you buy the UHU stick glue at?
  

I'm not efficient. But at least I'm slow

Titebond II comes highly recommended. Lots of people use UHU which is a sort of Ambroid (no longer available) substitute. For a fast-grab glue to glue your canopy and plastic to wood, people use Aleene's Tacky glue, available from walmart.
  For a white glue, I use Gorilla Carpenter's glue, also available from walmart because it is a fast grab, fast setting, very strong glue. see: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Gorilla-Wood-Glue-8-oz/15085314 . It is not pure white, it dries about the color of balsa.

Glue / Adhesive question?

I have built so many airplanes over the years that I no longer can use CA without it effecting my breathing.  I have become allergic to it and the accelerators.  I do not want to use Testor's, Ambroid or Sigment even if they still make it.....too old for the headaches that follow when using those. LOL.

My intent is to build with white glue or Titebond. If there are any other safe fast drying glues that can be used for framing the S&T models, I would love to hear about them.  I did not find a topic on glues. I apologize if this has been covered already.
  

Enjoy life!
