THat latch is next level ! Super-customize Me Please ! Are you still painting the Body Silver-graphite color? Now all we need is a Konessieg Agera Kit! Aoshima get on a licensing deal with Christian pronto!!!!

Thanks, Jason!!, I actually wasn't sure it was going to work at first to be fair. The actual kolor i'm painting it is going to be; Duplicolor Pewter Metallic. and yes, a Konessieg would be great!

Hi Dann. Pardon my ignorance, but what's the deal with this tool? Is it just a piece of wire on a handle, or a hypodermic type tube? What type of glue works with it and how do you use it?

Thanks, Greg.

Hey, Greg!, I don't know about anybody else, but quite often I will make things like this to make my building easier. I try to mask as much stuff as I can, but there will ALWAYS be a time that I have to hand paint/ detail something. I made this tool out of necessity for this Pagani, but its proving to be more useful than I originally thought. Its made of a styrene rod, and K&S spring steel. I needed something to accurately, and uniformly dd all the screws, and bolts in the interior, and after putting a comfortable angle on it, and grinding the end of it totally flat, it worked quite well as you can see. I ended up using it for knobs/ buttons on the steering wheel and dash as well. Its even REALLY great for micro applications of glue!, and you can scrape the end off as much as you need, without damaging the end, because its spring steel!  I do have other sizes now that I know they work well. Thanks for the interest, I hope this helped!

The body parts are all kleaned, and air-drying, I will blow them off with canned air before I start the painting process tomorrow...

Thanks so much for the step by step process @Dann Tier

You make it look so simple, but I don't think I would have figured it out on my own.

How do you get the dot of glue on the tool you use? Do you just dip the point into the superglue?

Variation on a theme. Here's a tool I've used for 30 years, specifically for applying super glue. It's a sewing needle that has half of the eye ground away. Dip it into a drop of super glue and hold it adjacent to the desired joint. Capillary action will draw the glue into the joint. Since these needles are hardened it's easy to scrape clean. Hope Dann doesn't mind my intrusion...

Take care, Mike

Glad to help, and yes, I just touch the tip on a drop of superglue.

That works pretty good too!, for my main building, I have an old pin-vise without the swivel end, that I use. I put a broken drill bit in it (backwards), and ground the tip at a sharp angle....works perfectly!. and like yours, you just scrape it klean!

Hi Dann, your performance on this kit is just great - and everybody knows it. Keep up the excellent work, looking forward to the finished model.

In addition to that, I can just quote this "wise guy":
