you add the struts for the top wing and there's hardly any opportunity 
for adjustment and alignment. 

A non-issue surely? I use CyA to put the struts into styrene kits too, and get no more dwell time than you'd get on a resin kit.

If you want a bit of breathing space, use a quick setting epoxy. That will allow 5 minutes or so before the glue starts to go off too much to make major adjustments and another 5 before it sets up too much to allow a little minor fettling.

(My problem with resin is the annoying habit it has of warping in our hot weather, but that's only an issue with long or long thin wings)
