LOTS of tylonal, asprin or advil , once you have a few bottles of each.

your gonna need green stuff and if your getting a bigger modle lots of it, a few sanding sticks a pin vice drill JB weld( works awsome on the modles better then super glue alone) clippers, exto knife and some hot water.


the only thing diff I do with FW modles is pretty much the hot water and JB weld.

the HOt water is for warped parts that seem to come with every FW modle I ever got unlike plactic the resin tends to snap pretty easy so I soak the part in hot water a few minutes to be able to bend it back into shape.

and i use JB weld + super glue with a pin to put the parts togeather the resin likes to come apart more easy then anything els ive worked with.

everything els is pretty stight forward like a plastic kit.

The only thing I do differently is wash them thoroughly to get the mould release agent off the resin. If you don't it can affect how well glue and paint adhere to the models. It also gets rid of the fibres that can sometimes be stuck to the models. Good luck.

Here is what I do in steps:

1) Confirm the kit. This means checking the kit is right (When mail ordering there is a possiblity someone mixed up your order.) and that all components are there and in proper shape. By this I mean correctly molded and not just unwrapped as often some parts will be warped and unless they are really bad you should be able to fix them.

2) Wash your parts thoroughly! There is usually a mold release agent which can -RUIN- any paint job and your model may be pretty much irreparable if you build it before washing the parts. Forgeworld say use warm water and dish soap though some people use other cleaners. Make sure that is -warm- water not -hot- water.

3) When sanding and prepping parts wear a mask and have good ventilation. The dust produced is toxic and can cause respiratory problems. It's also really annoying on my desk so I often sand over a towel for easier clean up.

Other than that they are pretty much like normal models. Build 'em, paint 'em then make pew pew sounds.
