So after being a recipient of many benefactors on this great forum, I decided to try and up my resin "skills" a bit. This is what I have learnt to date:
1) Wash and wash the parts. Then wash them again. (then repeat) Now I soak them overnight in a mild detergent solution.
2) Not all resin parts are better than kit parts because they are "resin". (You get good ones, and very very bad ones)
3) Sand, fit, sand, fit and then sand and fit again before you go near any glue.
4) Resin is very very brittle. Point in case, I used the Eduard undercarriage on my FW190, somehow managed to snap the tail wheel. This after painting and everything. Only way I could fix it , was to pry open the fuselage, remove the resin parts (using somer force) and replace the tail wheel assembly with the kit part.
5) Use a GOOD primer and let it dry at least 24 hours before painting.
6) Alway use protective gear when working with resin. That dust is nasty stuff.
Oh, did I mention, sand , fit, sand fit, sand , fit and the sand and fit again?
I am also reading up as much as I can and youtube videos. Really dont want to mess up that glorious AIMS BF-110 resin upgrade.
