Resin Cast Review: Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, 1863. Fahrenheit Miniature Project. (Fah 07) Part II

Although we have provided a cord for the tassels, this piece made of resin is extremely fragil. Our advice is replace the cord using electric wire. See the images bellow.

Cleaning the resin figure, STH 04 Afrika Korps.

To remove the resin blocks of the casting, there are two essential tools, a saw blade and a diamond file.

This type of files are really smooth and the effect is like use a soft sand paper, my favorite files from now.

First, remove the excess of resin of the molds with the saw blade. And after use the diamond file. Now the arm fits perfect.

In the inner part of the arm, just between the arm and the rifle, there is a little excess of resin. Remove it with a sharp blade, and soften it with a sand paper of nº 600.

The canteens should be removed with care to don’t loose the detail and the fits.
