Again, thanks for the comments. Community wisdom is invaluable!

One other major problem I have is getting the fuselage sections to line up flawlessly, a la papermate's and nikischutt's builds. I cut very carefully, just a nanometer or two inside the black lines. I make my own joining strips. I put the glue inside the section without the joining strip, and carefully mate them. But only about 60-70 percent of the joints are acceptable, to me. The others have a slight amount of either overhang or undercut.

I seriously don't know what I'm doing wrong, but this happens in every one of my builds, and it frustrates me to the point where I'm reluctant to keep building card model aircraft. It's not a lack of practice; I'm been building them (or trying to) since 2009.

Any thoughts? Would step-by-step photos help you folks figure out my problem?

Thanx for any assistance!
