Our models, except
the Fullcolor models, have to be painted. The painting of our
models is done without difficulty even by a novice modeler. It
takes as much time as mounting a plastic injected kit for a more
models are monobloc, so there is only painting to do. Other
models arrive in several parts, mainly to facilitate painting.
This material is suitable for acrylic paint which hangs very
well on it and is therefore painted like the Fritted polyamide
models (see this tutorial).
The glue also holds on very well.
Some parts may be oily (solvent residue), so degreasing with
soap and water is strongly recommended.
It is better to paint the parts before mounting it. In this
example the model has not been painted.
Excluding painting equipment,
you need stripper pliers, nail files, water-resistant sandpaper
and glue (here cyanoacrylate gel).
The plastic of the models
is very resistant (a fall on the ground will not break it)
but if you force too much, it will break rather than bend.
Be careful on the thinnest parts.
To remove burrs and traces
of supports, use nail files or sandpaper. Wet sandpaper
will prevent dusting.
In this view, the different
parts have been separated.
The windows are glued into
slots provided for this purpose inside the model. All that
remains is to put the transparent plastics to represent the
windows and other decorations.
The interior of the model
is partitioned for reasons of manufacturing techniques.
The shutters and the awning
are then simply glued.
