If you do slop the white glue somewhere on the model where you don't want it to be, simply dampen a Q-Tip and wipe it off.

and one of the BEST uses for it (future floor wax that is) is to protect a windshield from fogging if you want to superglue it in. coat in in future and let it dry and superglue wont fog it at all.
works great for hiding scratches in clear plastic too.
also for clear coating decals.

but to more directly answer the question, there is no glue that works best in all situations. i use mostly zap a gap superglue but also tenax liquid cement, white glue of stuff that doesnt have to be mounted super well but dont want the glue to show on, regular tube glue to weld plastic together and 5 minute epoxy. currently im leaning heavily toward the latter esp if i need a good bond that wont break apart with handling.
