and that is about it, as almost nothing else works.

The only thing that you can add is a 2-part epoxy glue, they come in differant types. the main differances are the working times.
Mostly I use a 5-minutes epoxy glue for connecting wings or building a box type/multi-part fuselage as it gives you a little m ore working time compared to CA glue.
You need to have set up a jig beforehand though, as the initial strenght is not so great, so your parts need to be supported until the glue has set, but is makes a strong bond when set. Pinning wing sand other parts makes it even stronger.

I don't know if it works with all types, but mine can be wiped away with alcohol when wet, some with laqceur thinner. No fun when fixing painted parts, but great stuff in some cases
