Tom, you should look into a tool that helps separate snapped parts. If I can remember the name or find a link, I’ll send it to you, its basically works like a staple remover, where there are two very thin metal prongs that let you slide into the seam, and slowly separate. I refurbish a lot of old kits and could use it myself!
Can’t wait to see you start the painting, I like that you’re using Rustolium, I’ve heard its a great alternative to the Aclad paints or metals by Tamiya.
Man you build soo fast. . wish i was half of that speed =/
Also lucky you, Spray paint here(In Australia)cost twice the price compare what you bought them for =/
I’m trying to investing in an airbrush instead :D
Suggestion here, maybe you can snip the top of the male parts (the protruding parts that sorta ‘go’ into the ‘female’ parts, or the holes) at 45 degrees with a precise cutter. That helps a lot in taking them out, still, good luck ;D looking forward to ya’ results ^^
Ah reminds me of my early days lol…too eager to snap the kit together! Nowadays I plan from the start what I want to do with the kit. If i am gonna to paint, I’ll probably skip the snap fit and avoid damaging the pegs.
