Wow--very interesting find, thanks Jan!

I especially like the technique where he rolls the roof section on a piece of foam--definitely going to use that someday...

"How does a kit born?" Well, I've often asked myself the same question... I suppose it's translating from the Italian.

I didn't know that crazy glue would hold well with wood. Does it hold better than a wood glue, like a carpenter's glue? I guess it's faster, but wonder if it'll hold as long.
I'm surprised they apply it right off the tube without a needle or brush.
the roof is interesting. I wonder if they solder the brass pieces on, or glue them somehow.

Crazy glue is quite "sturdy", but there are variations depending on the mfg and the type. I remember one instance when a customer returned a Magnus engine to the dealer because the detail parts started falling off the model. :-o :-o
Gel-type CA works well with wood and lasts well even outside.
