    Wow, Zathros! Thank you for your kindly comment. It's honnor me, a lot!!!! Thank you, so much.
    As the musical instrument, unfortunately I do not play anyone . . .

    But, as Handel, he was inspired by the biblical passage in Isaiah 9:6, that was fulfilled in Matthew 7:28, 29 and John 1:18. That is, who am I to be compared to the Messiah ? . . .

    Thanks for your precious encouragement, and it will be a great joy to be among the models of the month, if my humble Faro Basso deserve!

    @Enterpriser10 Yes, I am here. I have to say that I am ENJOYING your work!!!
    Having the ability to make minor repairs (with little to no expense) like this is a prime example of (one of the many reasons) why I prefer and so greatly enjoy paper model building over any other medium.

    This is not easy, because the long tabs need to be glued far way my finger . . . Look at the internal side. I needed to glue the larger tabs in two steps.

    Now, I'm looking at the part #8 . . . It's called by Uhu as "octopus", and it isn't without reason . . . It's very difficult to handle! :(

    Well, my friends, I think that the better way to start here is firming a starting−point on the limit with almost 0.5 mm from the extremities. But first, I need to fix the larger side of "octopus".

    After, I'll try to glue the green part back, to join the fissure.

    Then, I'll try to join the fissure in "octopus", gluing it at the green part back too.

    Coming along nicely! You're going to have a little treasure there. Get a nice plastic box display, and when mounted, have two little holes drilled in the base, have them fill it with Argon Gas. Those holes have to be such that they are, when filled, can be plugged with glue, rubber, etc. It is not filled under pressure, it just displaces the air, and Argon is so neutral, it will prevent deterioration. The Argon is heavier than air, so you want to have the model firmly mounted, and put the fill and drain hole on the bottom, so when righted, any "air" will remain above the model. :)

    Great suggestion, Zathros!!!! It'll be amezing, and special. I'll look for Argon to home use, if we have it here, in Brazil . . . But, thanks for your scientific suggestion!
