Try GE Polymer(shapes) or something like that. A lot of people said you could get it there a couple of years ago. They wouldn't always have it in stock. (like the day I went) It was somewhere near the Toronto airport. I was kind of lost when I found the place. I ended up getting some from Johnny Gough at the Cobble Hills club near London. He also sells some nice .25 size Scale Combat kits that use the stuff. The WW1 planes were $45 and the WW2 were $60. If you get in touch with him in time you could maybe pick it up at the London swap meet Nov. 13. It is a must go place anyway. You can roll it up and tape it, and get it in a back seat of most cars. I think I paid $14 a couple of years ago.

I clean the coro with acetone, roughen areas to be glued with 3M pad or very fine sandpaper, again clean with acetone, mist the area with window cleaner, glue with poly glue (Gorilla or Elmers Ultimate). I do not "flash" the coro, I have no need to do so, plus it can be hazardous to health and workshop!

Where I have had other techniques such as CA or hot glue or contact cement fail in use or due to prolonged exposure to heat in the car, etc., joints done this way have never failed.

I have never found the need to excessively clamp parts, usually I use some masking tape, rubber bands or small weights, depending upon the location of the joint. Check back after a few minutes to see how it is doing, wipe way any excess foaming glue (or just leave it around bulkheads and firewal to create a strong flllet.
