Model glue will work but, personally, I like to use CA glue with a spray accelerator like "Zip Kicker". It gives you some workability  time, but then sets instantaneously when sprayed. A third-party (spouse, significant other, child) that can apply the spray while you hold the parts together can be helpful for parts that are difficult to hold together with one hand while you spray with the other.

IMHO, that process makes the project go faster so you don't have to wait for glue to dry before moving on to the next step, especially if you're "on a roll ". Doesn't mean you should rush, but it gives you the option to move on to the next step right away without having to wait overnight for glue to dry. Make sure to gently wipe off the excess spray right away in case it wants to interact with the painted surface.

Rubber bands and painter's tape to hold pieces together while mocking up or gluing, toothpicks to apply glue, and blocks to keep corners true, along with a clean and neat workspace are also helpful.

I also like to "dry-fit" pieces together before gluing to avoid any potential issues.
