General assembly instructions:
- Separate major parts from the sprue with a hobby knife, leaving small details on the sprue. Use slicing motions and apply only little pressure.
- The print is covered with a protective oil film that needs to be removed. Soak the parts for a couple of minutes in white spirit (no longer than 5 minutes). Further clean the parts using a brush and white spirit. Rinse with water. Once dry the appearance changes form translucent to opaque white.
- Although the models have been designed to minimise visible stepping, some sanding might be needed. Use fine wet & dry sanding paper in the range of grit 600 to 800.
- Assemble the model using CA glue for structural parts (dry-fit first!). Small parts and details can also be glued with white glue or Kristal Klear.
- Paint the model.
