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.

As a follow up to this my earlier question, how smooth does the first hull planking need to be? Should it be a mirror finish? Reasonable (no finger pricks when moving hand along planks?
Thanks!

BigGrin Hi the first planking needs to be smooth without dips or high spots along the length of the hull . It doesn't need to be mirror finished in fact a slightly rough finished wood will give the second planking something to grip to. I finish mine with 200 grade sandpaper. Hope this helps
