My 1/350 North Star G-5 kit arrived today. It's a neat little (emphasis on little) model.

Looks great Al. Thanks for clarifying the G-5 classification that I messed up earlier. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

The kit looks nice especially considering the size. You're going to have to stack 2 jewelers loupes together to work on that... How do you glue those fine pieces???

Having worked with this stuff I would recommend Gators Grip PVA. It shrinks down and dries flat and is very durable. What are you thinking Al?

How do they deal with the engine exhaust system? Did they provide a brass rod for that?

I use CA for pretty much everything. The exhaust calls for .4mm wire, but it isn't supplied in the kit.
