Really miss this regular posting of yours, but hope you are well.
what glue do you use to stick the litho plate to balsa, I have tried all sorts with very few giving just the right result without getting seriously sticky myself.
My Tiger is coming on nicely, now Covid19 has made its presence felt.

I am doing fine thank you and hope you are too. I am amazed that it is 3 years ago I completed the Tiger Moth. It is in good condition and continues to fly regularly without incident and I still enjoy taking it out. I had one heavy landing that bent one u/c arm that carries the wheels but fixed OK.
My recollection is that I used either Deluxe Materials RC Modellers Canopy Glue for the litho plate or UHU Por as they both hold onto this type of smooth non absorbent surface as well as balsa. If I was pushed, I would guess the RC Modellers Canopy Glue was the one, yes you can get sticky, but when dried you can roll off any bits that have oozed out of the joint or got in places you do not want it to.

Many thanks Peter.
By the way, did you make the pinking tapes on the Brother cutting machine? I know you previously mentioned you did the inspection hatches and lettering on it.

The pinked tapes were from Mick Reeves, see link here. The pinked circles for the inspection hatches were also from Mick Reeves, same link as pinked tapes. I cut the cardboard circles for the inspection hatches myself on the Brother.
