Be sure to thoroughly wash all the resin parts in detergent and warm
water to remove all the
mold release agent.
Test fit every part carefully before placing anything permanently.
Microscale "Liqui Tape" works
well for this and can be washed off before final placement.
Don't be afraid to sand or file the parts to get a good fit just do it
slowly and remove only a tiny amount
of material at a time.
Prime it before painting the finished model (gray or white primer
works well) this will allow any
small blemishes to show up and set up the resin for paint.
If I think of anything else I'll post it later.
Phil, that's good advice above and I'll add:
For your own health, wear a good quality dust mask when you're creating
resin dust (ie sawing, filing or sanding), and wet sand as much as
possible - the dust is mondo toxic. Same for your family; keep them away
or dress them properly if they want to watch.
Wash your hands before eating, drinking or smoking, for that same old
toxic dust reason.
Use super glues or epoxies to fix the parts in place, as styrene cement
Resin is usually brittle, so take some care with where you hold it and
how much pressure you apply. The up-side of that is that resin parts
tend to break cleanly, with no distortion, so they are usually easy to
glue back together. Unless they shatter, in which case, all bets are off.
Just because someone says that it's the right part doesn't make it so -
check your references if you're at all anal about accuracy. Even the big
companies get it wrong sometimes (I'm naming no names.)
