Instructions


 For all scales!

The resin we use is photo / light sensitive. It is imperative that you put a coat of primer paint on your models without delay. After we print the parts / models, we put them in a wash with 95% ethanol or 95% isopropyl alcohol to remove any resin residue. The models are then put in an UV light chamber to cure. Even after the parts / models have been cured in the UV chamber, the curing process may continue if exposed to light and that may cause the model to become brittle and or crack.

  • Note: It is important to remember that Resin models will crack or snap before they bend.
  • Paint or primer your models as soon as you get them, with out delay.
  • Use several thin coats of paint. It is easy to cover over some of the fine details.
  •  If your model appears to ooze or sweat / leak resin you should was it in 95% ethanol or 95% isopropyl alcohol    and  then expose to sunlight for roughly an hour. The primer at once with no delays.
  • Do not ingest or take internally, parts made of resin. Keep away from children.
  • Do not get liquid resin on your skin, wash with plenty of fresh water immediately.
  • Resin in liquid form may cause allergic reaction. If this happens get medical treatment at once.

Glue

 

  • We recommend using a CA ( Cyanoacrylate ) based super glue.
  • Note: CA ( Cyanoacrylate ) based super glue sets PERMANENTLY in just two (2 - 5 ) seconds, with this type of resin. Be sure to test fit all parts before gluing. Once the part is glued in place, that's is where it stays for ever. 
  • We tested several different manufactures, "model cement". Of all the glue designed for "plastic model kits" that we tested, each failed after a few days.    

Paint

  • Wash and rinse all parts / models thoroughly before painting.

  • You must put a coat of primer paint on your models as soon as you receive them. The resin we use to print our resin based models with is UV / light sensitive. While we ran the models / parts threw a UV curing chamber, further exposure to light my cause the models / parts to cure farther and this could crack or damage your models.
  • Use several thin coats of paint, as it is easy to fill in or cover up the fine details in some of these models. 
  • Painting green resin  It is best to paint a coat of gray primer then several thin coats of the final color.
  • Official colors ( Colors used on Phantom Hobbies display models ).
