Ebon Hawk 1/270
irob78 @masterdoyle Thanks for mentioning. I'm hoping that it's not too bad after it's cleaned and painted. I'm not intending to handle it ever, it's a display piece for sure. It's extremely low on my project list but once I've painted it I will post results here.
irob78 @Mel_Miniatures Can you recommend a way to clean this model before I paint it? I don't want to ruin it if it can't get wet, or otherwise. Thanks.
irob78 A view of just the model, with powder on my finger.
irob78 Here you go. The powder on the model isn't as severe as in the bag but I'd still like to clean it.
irob78 @fbf9094 Sorry, just saw this. Yes, I will do so this weekend.
irob78 I've received mine and it looks awesome! Much lighter than I expected but that doesn't matter for a display piece. The only concern I have is that the model and the entire inside of its bag are powdery, I assume as a byproduct of the printing process. I want to clean this off before I paint but I'm not sure how, I don't want to risk damaging the model. Do you have a recommended way to clean this powder off before I paint?
