    Split from "What are you working on right now ?"

    Hi.

    I´m working on a 1:72 japanese type 94 tk resin kit and on a 1:35 Type 3 Chi-Nu.

    By the way, what have I to take care of when working on a resin it?

    Yours

    Resins can have a greasey film on them. Make sure you wash them in warm soapy water before putting together. I also like to use a gap filling super glue. My painting seems to come out better if I use a primer on the resin.

    I use a gap filling super glue. It's available at most good hooby shops/model stores. I also use a product called accelerator. It's a liquid that you spray on the super glue and it hardens in about three seconds.
