Glue

I use white carpenters wood glue and also super glue for some fiddly bits. 

 

Same as Brian, I use almost exclusively PVA.  I have used CA to stiffen up small or fragile pieces but this can discolour/darken the print.

 

The brand I use comes in both interior and exterior grades and find the interior better as it has a very slightly different viscosity.

 

I have been trying to find Aleene's tacky glue to try as it appears a lot of U.S. builders use this but haven't found it yet.

 

I can't use the clear stringy UHU glue that the majority of Europeans use.  The stringiness drives me nuts.

 

Cheers

I prefer UHU HART which hardens quickly (in about 30 seconds). If something went wrong a small amount of fresh applied glue softens the prior portion again a little and allows corrections. It does not put moisture on the cardboard and even big parts don´t shrink or bend too much. It hardens the edges. If gaps remain i normally close them with CA later.

I prefer to use Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. I find it has less moisture content than my Elmer's Wood Glue.

I also use limited amounts of Super glue when necessary.

 

No matter what glue you are using, experience has shown me that less is more, use the glue sparingly.
