Yesterday we had the unboxing and today is clean up. As you can see in the first picture the largest parts have an incredible amount of flash on them, huge big chunks of the stuff! The only way to remove this is with hacksaw. The one I use is called a magic saw and it’s pretty good, I’m sure Gandalf uses the same one. The second picture shows me filing down the rear piece and the third picture shows the dry fit, not a bad fit.
Oh and when I called this the Big Clean Up I wasn’t joking, here you’ll see me using a vacuum cleaner to get rid of all the resin dust. These small particles are really bad for you if you inhale them so wear a mask when sanding and keep vacuuming it all up… Either that or hold your breath*

Next post will be a big dry fit picture, so make sure you check back regularly. Also be sure to check out Stahly’s and Sigur’s awesome works.

Sorry, I've messed with the comments feed… now it should work as normal. Thanks Muskie for pointing me out!

Thanks a lot, we appreciate any help to continue and grow Tale of Painters 🙂
Very nice, good read as well. The thing is looking immense already. 😉
As for these large chunks of resin that come attached to these kinds of FW kits, many of them can be used for some terrain like dragon's teeth or makeshift barricades made of concrete for urban warfare (modern or futuristic).
Anyway, looking forward to what the fit is like on that kit!
