As I'm getting ready to sand, putty, and then attach the sepele strips, I'm wondering if there's any advice on whether to use wood glue or something stronger? I wasn't sure how well the wood glue would adhere to the putty.
Thanks!

Like martyn i also use the same woidglue that i have the the base build.

Never become slilled to use contact glues so i work on the final planking in exactly the same way asi did the first panking.

Thanks very much for the quick replies. My Falcon and R2D2 builds were well within my wheelhouse of 40+ years of plastic models and engineering background, but this is my first venture into wooden models. I'm having a blast and learning a LOT of new techniques.
