Sorry to see that Nigel. You arent having much luck lately. That ply does look weak for such a large plane, but you might have got a stronger bond by letting thin CA wick into the joint rather than pre-applying to the hinge? If that would have been enough i'm not sure because 1.5mm ply isn't much on a plane this big.

Seems like they directly scaled up the design from the smaller version without also 'beefing up' in critical places.
