Things learned so far:

ABS plastic is quite tough. Stronger than most model plastics but not as brittle as resin. Some where in between.

Tamiya glue doesn't work all that well with it. I have to leave it over night before I couldn't pry the pieces apart. Super glue worked a lot better. have to try Tenex 7R yet.

It seams to be quite porous on the edges as a sharprie I was using to mark it was soaked into the plastic.

Will have to try paint on it next to see how well it take or if it will need a good primer before painting.

WAY Cool! One thing I'll be interested to watch for here is that 3-D printed objects generally have a fabric-like surface texture resulting from the 'resolution' limits of the printing process itself (not necessarily the CAD information used). They do seem to take putty & paint fairly well. Any thoughts on this?
