As you get older your eyes may well go downhill a little so seeing small marks during the construction of an airframe is hard work, if you have problems seeing small marks when building airframes stick a dab of fluorescent highlighter over the mark and it stands out like a sore thumb, I prefer yellow but others may prefer pink or green.
Highlighters are useful for a few jobs during building so keep one handy,

I think the ideas and quick tips will come in steadily as we get them, I was struggling to see fine alignment marks unless I used a bright light then when the tube in my desk light went I tried this idea which worked fine and this is how things happen,

Ever tried marking black EPP before cutting?.....tried felt tips, balloints, crayons.
Best thing I found are the 49p gold and silver metallic pens from stores like Wilkinsons.
They don't last long when you leave the tops off, but they do show up on black.

use a snake inner with a plastic clevis, to guide servo leads through wings, if you cut off the clevis pin the servo plug fits nicely in the clevis. using the snake allows you to twist and turn the plug to get through the ribs
