    Best suggestion i Can give is a good industrial barrier cream. Like Rosalex but more modern.Better for Elf'n safety too.Use cocktail sticks or splints of wood to apply small amounts of glue etc. You can't be that bad if you're on the 3rd build though.We all suffer for our hobby like that to some extent . I well remember biting balsa and plastic cement off my fingers. Barring solvents ( Chloroform ,Ether , Acetone,Celly thinners etc) still the best way to shift it. Also use disposable tweezers to handle small parts or steel ones you can scrape or burn off Good luck John.πŸ˜› P S I found a liquid called Plastic Magic. It is applied to the closed( close fitting )joint with the tip of a fine brush. Just a drop. It shoots along the joint by capillary action. Gravity helps too.πŸ€”. I've yet to find a plastic it won't glue/join.brilliant stuff. regards holding things steady to dry many things can be used. Pins,bulldog ,clips,clothes pegs, steel blocks,Lego type blocks

    Welcome I too have been modelling since about '55 making simple lateen πŸ‘Žsail yachts. Celluloid sails a round lolly stick a block of wood and a bit of steel for a keel. Dad cut the steel with a hackie and made the slot for it. They sailed surprisingly well. I've not made much contribution here as I'm not active just now but I add the odd comment or idea into the mix. Ha Ha I don't know if I've helped anyone but no one has complained. YET LOL. We are all le⚑🚀arning so stick with us and enjoy.

    To up/down the S/l would need a cage or frame carried on the base of the pivoting lamp. On this would need to be arranged a very small motor with a spiral gear driving as large a cogwheel as possible and a connecting rod attached to it nr centre and the lamp.LOW voltage big cog small spiral or spur gear for slow motion. AS always experiment

Filled and sanded it blends well into the hull. Maybe not true scale but looks nice. it comes in many sizes and suppliers.SLEC is one for starters and Hobbies is another. Balsa Cabin another.

    IIRC means if I Recall Correctly. No the hinges are vertical A La Park Gates The closing edges secured by a rod or bar dropped through holes in welded on overlapping plates with holes in them. The hinges are made likewise. Plates with holes in supported by round bars welded to plates welded to the side. Maybe to a rib or stanchion for strength. The "gates" opened outwards. I hope you can follow this and it helps.πŸ‘
