When I was a teacher, I was a pro-grade consumer of glue sticks. If it's going to be flexed, then a gluestick is probably not your best choice. Rubber cement is really good for that as long as you're careful with the application. Gluesticks are perfect for adding things on top of other like gluing windows or other flat effects on the paper. For folded seams pva glue does a great job.
I found the gel version of "school glue" seems to be a pretty happy medium but it does bleed through paper a bit to much.

POLL DESCRIPTION

I noticed this morning that Elmer's has a new "Xtreme" gluestick for "tough" projects. Do you find gluesticks useful for paper modeling?
