I have ordered SEVERAL pieces in White flexi polished, but some of the details have been polished away. Would love to order some in Fine Detail Plastic, but i am concerned it looks too gritty or "printy" with the linework.

WFP is perfect for me if i print bigger, but im curious how much better it could look if i used FDP...

Anyone...?

((Enclosed is my Klingon Bru'Tok destroyer, with one coat of green and detail paints added - this is in WFP, and it about 5.5 inches long.))

You'd be better of using Frosted Detail or Frosted Ultra Detail. Those materials take a bit of work to prep for paint , you must remove residual support wax and corn oil, but with a little work it's the best material for models.


Earl Grey, hot.
