Can you tell us more about what glue you are using? Any helpful tips are appreciated! Are the pieces fitting well and are they the same thickness/height per section?
Thanks Eric

Hello Eric,
This is my first time so just learning:
west systems epoxy slow cure,
yes the pieces are fitting exactly perfect, i think it was a one piece on the computer then cut by lazer so everything is fitting perfect its left to the builder to get it aligned

Oh one tip: don't take out the trash until everything is done. So far I had to dig in the trash twice

I'm worried about glue being hard to sand. Are you removing epoxy that squishes out with alcohol?
Are you adding any stiffeners like CF or hardwood?

I'm going to brush epoxy into the joints to hold it all together in different sections

Aren't you gluing the pieces together with epoxy on the mating surfaces? If so is there no glue coming out when pressed together? I am not sure there will be much strength added by coating the inside surfaces. Just a lot of weight perhaps?

I didn't think epoxy could soak into such fine cracks.

yes, I will turn the model on its side with slow curing epoxy I believe it will penetrate somewhat.
