The T-Rex build requires "CA" glue ... what is this??? Is it perhaps superglue??

yes it is super glue a lot of modelers use zap you can also get a accellarater spray which is very good i myself go to a double glazing window unit were i get both for about £10 it not zap but it is trade strenth and i get a lot more in the bottle i think CA stands for cyanoacrylate

Yes -- CA is cyanoacrylate, or super glue.

Sheldude Does that help? Everytime I use CA I get so stuffed up and sneeze all nite long, That I can't even sleep. I have been avoiding using CA for a few years now,but I put a wood P51D model together the other day for a friend and used CA and it killed me... never again...

Slider -- it sounds as if you may have developed a sensitivity to CA. It happens, just as some people become sensitized to the resins in epoxy.

Allergies are a bummer!

Yes I have I used to build scale wood planks but due to the problems with CA I went to helis which is all nuts and bolts. I'm not allergic to them yet...LOL I like building but the allergic reactions takes all of the fun out of it.. I can work with resins all day with no problems as I have gas boat too that need fiberglass work from crashes too.....

The foam safe stuff (particularly the GP Foam Safe CA) is odorless and will definitely help, if not completely alleviate, your alergic reaction to it.
