You're doin' it wrong!
Make it a gap stager and you can double the wall at the cuts and stiffen with CA. My son did that with his and it works great.

During their zenith SHR had some impressive parts. The bells case in point. Still and all it is a kit, and the expertise displayed here is without compare.

Not if you pre-strengthen the tube BEFORE the cuts! Epoxy, CA, or a coupler inside will do this just fine.

This is all very meta- talking about making a model of a model after all. Great techniques and great builds.

There is a fairly decent drawing by Robert Blaske of the exterior of the GLV which demonstartes the scale location of the vents. As you observed, the tear drop shaped openings would only appear within the frame of a set of stringers, thuse they would be immediately below one of the rectangular openings or in the space in whcih there was no opening, between stringers. Note also that this perspective has eighteen on the interstage.
