Hi
I'm assuming you mean 'foamboard' (bloomin' spell checkers!). I use Vitalbond thick superglue, available in 50g bottles reasonably on eBay. I sometimes also use an activator spray with it if I don't fancy holding parts together while the glue sets.

for indoors, i use the white carpenter's glue.

(i found toothpicks and shish kebab sticks a great help to align the layers)

Been told that solvent free uhu is also used as the standard uhu dissolves the middle core

Mike models in foamboard, why not ask him what he uses?
