When cleaning up resin parts a certain amount of dust will be created. Resin dust can be harmful so we recommend the use of a dust mask while performing this task.
Think also of those around you by finding a suitable area to work that is well ventilated.
Take similar precautions with any other substances such as adhesives and paints etc.
NOT FOR CHILDREN.
These kits contain a number of small parts, which may be easily swallowed so please ensure that you keep these out of reach of small children and or animals.
TOOLS AND ADHESIVES.
To assemble your model you will need the standard modelling tool also used for plastic kits. These will include a scalpel or craft knife, cutters, files, tweezers etc. However, we recommend the use of a razor saw or similar tool for the removal of casting blocks on resin parts. You may also need a small selection of modelling drills to create a hole for a pin or to open a locating point. For best results, use cyanoacrylate (super glue) for assembly. Two part epoxy glues may be used to attach larger parts. You will find these items in most craft shops.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN.
Before assembly, gently wash all resin parts in warm (not hot) soapy water. This will remove any mould release agent, which may affect paint. Never attempt to remove casting blocks from resin parts by snapping, as this will often damage the part. Use a razor saw or similar tool for this task. Due to the nature of resin, it is possible that you may find one or two small air bubbles on the surface of some parts. We always do our very best to avoid this, but it is not always possible. Should this occur, a small amount of filer should fix the problem. Alternatively, super glue can be used for this task as it sets quickly and can be sanded after setting.
