I'm doing my first ever Warhammer 40K models. I've got 5 heavy weapon guys from the devastator box set. I've removed the flashing and mold seem lines from the flat surfaces but how do you get rid of it on the ribbed areas such as the las canon and plasma canon? I've got needle files but they are still too big and the scalpel is too big as well?
Is there specialist little tooling for this?

I need some tips because I want the first lot to turn out great.

Cheers
Pete

you have to get in there with the tip of the knife, or at least that is what I have to do on mine.

You are right, they are an absolute bastard to get rid of. When I can be bothered I use the tip of my stanley knife.

OK thanks guys.
Looks like a need a new blade then. Being my first models I'm probably being too critical but I'm a perfectionist and it makes my life hell.

I'll see how I go.

Cheers

i've always found that a scalpel [with an A10 blade] is small enough to get right in there and remove all the flash. it's a pain in the hole, and takes a while, but it works!

I really cant say much more than what has been said. They are a pain in the rear to remove, but if you are careful they can be removed.

I usually CBA, since they aren't usually noticeable...
