Working with Resin and Pewter Kits
- CLEANING – Before using, parts must be washed off with soap (Westleys white wall cleaner), and alcohol to remove modl release.
- WARPING – If part is warped or bent, use hot (NOT BOILING) water to help pull it back into shape. Then use cold water for it to “take set” as you would with a plastic kit.
- BODY WORK – After cleaning, the parts may be sanded, filled or drilled. Small imperfections or air bubbles can be filled with Super Glue or 5 minute epoxy.
- PAINTING – Primer coats of automotive primer are recommended on all parts before painting. Hobby paints, enamel and automotive lacquers work fine for finishing coats.
- STIPPING PAINT – Some stippers may damage the resin parts, test a small area first. You may use lacquer thinner, Easy-Off oven cleaner and some brake fluids.
- GLUING – use Super Glue or 5 minutes epoxy.
- PHOTO-ETCH – Cut off the tree with a sharp scissors.
- PEWTER – Can be buffed with steel wool, fine grit sandpaper, polished with chrome polish. Seal surface with clear coat.
- WINDOWS – Trim carefully with scissors.
- Always use respirator dust mask when sanding resin parts.
TEST FIT ALL PARTS BEFORE PAINTING AND FINAL ASSEMBLY!
