West is not very heat resistant compared to some others. I vaguely recall that the other two can be postcured to add a bit of heat resistance.

I have used Gougeon Proset for everything, and it is great stuff. Two viscosities, two hardener speeds. West System (also from Gougeon) is great on wood but not the best for laminating.

MGS has a huge following for open wet layup airplanes...
