    One of the biggest difference over the last 30 years is all the great aftermarket stuff and the resulting need for different glues. Back then you had a tube of styrene cement. I almost never use that anymore. For PE, you need to use Cyanoacrylate (CA) glue - same as the old "Crazy Glue". I use Tamiya Extra Thin liquid cement for most other work on the plastic stuff.

    Instead of the P.E. thought i would try some wire and plumbing this what i started.

    Removed the molded wire and fuel line

    started cleaning off sidewall

    does the fuel line look about the right size.

    That's a nice looking kit Woody me old mate and looks a lot of fun with all that detail, like Andy says, take your time and for goodness sake stop banging your head with the glue pot.

    Looks good so far Woody. If you want to be even more realistic, the middle of the section in the fuel hose that you left as supplied wi the kit was, in reality, clear so that the pilot could actuallysee the fuel flow. Easily done with a piece of clear stretched sprue.

    Oh, and you should be able to get a debonder for CA glue at your local hobby store. Comes in a separate bottle and is good to have around for the stuck body parts.
