Epoxy. commonly known as araldite.
Takes time to stick but dont attack this foam.

Use hot glue or 5 min epoxy....
well, either the vertical stab is slightly big or the wing is small in length.

use rubber based glue... you will get solid joints...

First clean surface with Petrol ( which has no oil mixed)

I agree with sandeepm sir.
Also, though the model is built neatly, still, does this material has sufficient strength to survive in air. Since, what i could make out from the pics, this is the one used in packing of TV, refrigerators...

I also don't no the name of this form, may be EPS ( correct if i am wrong ).
But i have tried this, This has to be strengthen with Spar, and covered with Polythene or any smooth surface. The Bare surface will restrict airflow, and stop your plane moving forward.

 Thumbs Up give it a try.

Expanded polyethylene or EPE foam, I think.

Re:
