I use Ponal wood-Glue. it takes a while until it is hard but is works very well and did not damage the FO.
To collect the FO i use a drinking straw. You can have it in different diameters. i glued a short piece of it in the ship and collect the fo in this piece after putting the fo through the hole
Drinking straws are a GREAT idea! Right now I'm using styrene rod sections- cut down in about 1-2" sections. I had it hanging around and don't have anything better to do with it at the moment, so it seemed like "yeah, why not?". But straws would not only be more ecumenical, but probably a better fit too as the styrene diameters I have are either very loose or too tight.

Will definitely put drinking straws on the shopping list for the next grocery run.

"As Seen on TV" Lasebond is what I use. instant dry, holds well and you can peel it back with your xacto if you need to re-do

I'll check into that, as well as the Ponal. Thanks!

After connecting all cables inside i closed the hull and prepared it for painting

one layer of primer. then after 2 days drying i added a thin layer of dark grey because the primer was not dark enough for me

Looks fantastic Haui! I think I should have gone red with my garbage chute, but I did a blue flicker. Also like how you paint, mask, paint for those panel lines, pretty slick idea. I'm definitely gonna remember that procedure :thumbsup

I Used a special airbrush maskfilm. so it is sure that you do not remove the color when you remove the mask :)

Now i have to trimm the fiberoptics and draw the lines on the hull
