Ok, I've got my kit (Ruffkin) and I'm about to dive into the nightmare of building it. I've prepared myself with weeks of searching this site ad naseuma, and gotten my ref. CD, so I've pretty much done my homework. I'm still left with a few questions.
Adhesives. I see alot of people talk about epoxies. Is that the route I should go, or just treat this styrene like a model kit and super glue, etc?
The resin pieces. Some are pretty rough, what type of sandpaper is recommened so I don't overdue it? And what is preferred for trimming resin pieces, especially the much thicker pieces?
Trimming the styrene. Do most people just use scissors and a hobby knife, or is the Dremmel route the best?
Prep for painting. The filled (bondo'd) areas are obvious, but does the styrene need a light sanding prior to the primer?
Lastly, and this is just an anal assembly question. From the reference pics, the flamethrower box sits about 1/4 of an inch lower from the outer edge. Some people just bulid it flush with the top, what the consenus?
I'm tackling most of this at a higher novice level. Plus I'm a type A, so I want everything to be exact, but I know this ain't gonna happen. I'm just trying to do this right the first time. I know you'll laugh at that statement.
Thanks for the help!
