Hi all!

I am building a wooden model ship and I would like to print some decoration parts in FUD. I already modeled some parts and ordered them to check the quality.
The only thing that concerns me is the durability of the material. I intend to paint the parts with acrylic paint and glue them to the hull. There will be no mechanical stress on them.

Of course there will be no experience how a FUD part will look like after 20 years..... Smile

But are there some estimates? Will it remain in shape or will it desintegrate and get brittle over time?

Thanks for any answers or guesses!
