If we look at this image. Then according to the FE-model, the moon never blocks the sun.
Then how is a solar eclipse possible?

I think they rely on a 'shadow object' or some separate entity which only ever appears during an eclipse. They talk about eclipses here: http://wiki.tfes.org/Lunar_Eclipse (http://wiki.tfes.org/Lunar_Eclipse)

That doesn't work...at all. Do they even think this nonsense through?

No, it's all ad hoc.

I would be less surprised to see a pig fly then I would be to see a flat earther thinking something through.

flat earth cannot be since if it was there would be no way the outer planets could be lit by the spotlight sun

Depending on who you ask, they might not be planets. Apparently the Earth's the only 'planet'. I know a few say others provide their own light.

That is not even talking about solar eclipses...
I said "solar eclipse", not "lunar eclipse"...
