Guys I am new to scale building. I am about to start the build of a Vario EC145. What do you recommend using for attaching the wooden internal parts to the fibreglass fuselage? Is there any special glue for this job?

I think a good quality epoxy or ca with primer will work. make sure everything is clean

Glue???
The glue that "most" (well almost all!!) of us use for this part of the build is Aeropoxy.. it is excellent bonding properties, and you can even run a vertical line and it will stay there without running or sagging while curing.
Just make certain that you clean the inside of the fuselage prior to glueing to it, just to make sure all release agent is gone... soap and water, and then I go through it with alcohol...
Here is a link to the product from where I purchase it.. there are different names for the product and Hysol is another for the same product... depending what is available from your location..
Good Luck, Stan

Do not use CA to attach the wood..it will cure and hold for a little while, but is too brittle and will not hold for long...

Yep the hysol stuff is the best, they affix the wood bulkheads to the fiberglass on $15k BVM jets so I think they are sure the stuff works well
Aeropoxy is just BVMs rebranding of the hysol and marking the price up a little lol

Hysol 9462 and BVM aeropoxy are the same, bvm sell it for 16.50 and mcmaster sells it for 15.50.

best adhesive you could use for gluing wood bulkheads/formers in a composite fuselage.

Make sure you thoroughly sand and clean with 80 grit sand paper and acetone before you apply the glue.

I wonder how that compares to the old HobbyPoxy thixatropic epoxy. That really worked well for gluing in firewalls into epoxy fuselages.

About the same .. Hobby Poxy had a bunch of Bad stuff in it though .. If it works real good it's probably bad!

Are we talking about the glue or their paint? I don't know if their stuff was really any more hazardous than today's urethane and acrylic paints, but I wore respirators back then anyway. Of course with the glue, there never was any smell or vapors.

I still think the old Hobbypoxy 2 was the best for sheeting wings and making fillets that I ever saw.

Aeropoxy! thats the best. I use it in all my builds and even use it in ARF planes to increase rigid.

I used this

However, I found it to be not very suitable if gasoline is going tocome in contact. Worked great for E-Scale
