I cut and put together another model from MakeCNC. This time an Allosaurus. Everything went together with ease. I didn't run into any troubles with this model. One thing I've found invaluable in putting together models such as this one is the use of a precision applicator for glue. I bought a set of these bottles off of amazon for less than $10 and it has made putting glue into these little slots a breeze. I highly recommend them to anyone doing similar work. I use Titebond II wood glue in them. The model is made from proofgrade walnut plywood.
