I would like to know since this is my first 1/700 scale ship model I am building, do you guys put the port hole windows on even though it is in 1/700th scale like your counterparts do in 1/350th? Would the holes be to small to do that?

I drill the portholes out but don't fill them with anything. I do coil some fine wire around a small drill bit then cut the coil from the center out. this should leave you rings to then cut in thirds then glue them over the portholes for eyebrows.
