Right, I just got my first KoW purchase that wasn’t plastic or metal, but what they say is PVC…
So it’s this guy I’ve looked at so far:
I’ve made and painted a few resin models before, but this stuff doesn’t feel like resin to me really. But maybe it behaves more like it? I did some searches online, and I couldn’t find much guidance, but I did find this:
So it seems that I should treat it like resin? But maybe some more experienced Mantic-ers here could help me confirm some questions…
- Does it need to be washed first?
- Should glue it with super glue? (rather than poly cement for plastic)
- Can I heat it to bend parts into shape? (which I definitely need to do, looking at the parts). And assuming so, should I only heat it by dipping into hot water? Or is using a hair dryer still ok? (which is what I’d used on resin before).
- Finally, if anyone is familiar with this kit, do you have any instructions etc. for how it’s supposed to be built? I can get pretty close to the images etc easily of course, but exactly how some of the parts are meant to join on (esp the back/central motor with back wheel on it), and the rider, is pretty confusing, as they don’t seem to fit properly in any location really. I would love it if it had come with some clearer pictures or instructions really!
