    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..... :)

    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!
