So I've started cleaning off the release agent on my Phantom. It's time consuming. And, if you look close, you can see that after that I have my work cut out for me removing all the gates and stuff that are there as part of the casting process. Still, it's a great model. The pieces have really good detail and I'm really looking forward to painting it after I do all the requisite prep work to make it beautiful. It's gonna take forever.
*sigh. So I'm having some trouble with laying out the motley on the lower leg. Because the leg is tapered the pattern will have to increase in size as it goes down the leg. That means that I'm going to have to free hand it and on such a big piece it'll be easy to see mistakes. Ack! I'll have photos soon of how that's coming along.
So I've run into a bit of a snag. Totally fixable but... I tend to use really thin superglue to assemble my models. Largely, this works great. Alas, on this huge piece it's just not doing the trick. And thus I turn to the internet. Thankfully, Forge World has a really great PDF about working with resin and really it boils down to the fact that I should be using epoxy for these monstrous pieces. I can do that.
