What do you do to get parts to come apart if they've been glued incorrectly?

In the past, I always chech immediately after gluing the part together, and reglue it correctly.  I'm to much of a perfectionist to settle for less...

I think you need to pay greater attention to detail.

Awesome work buddy. I think your patience is extraordinarily.

Painting again today... I realize that I understand pointed brushes as far as detail work goes in painting....it makes it much easier, and NEAT. an education on what to buy and why after all these years...

Both engines, nearly finished.  and both armor plates for the engines.  These have to be added, and the radiators, and then I can move on to the flight deck/cockpit.
