I’ve just started working on the same plans. Did you stick to the directions? I was wondering whether to use dowels to joint the legs to the body in addition to glue. I think that it might help it stand up better to rough treatment. I was thinking of adding them from the inside of the outer body parts. Use a temporary bond for stage 1 of joining the body parts, then glue the legs as per the instructions. After the glue has dried I could then carefully separate the outer body parts and fit dowels through to the legs so they will be hidden in the finished product.

And yours looks great by the way.
