Tutorial – Seamlines Gone Away!! (with Putty)
And so, this week I research how to remove them and I finally use the putty method.
Normally you could use Mr.Surfacer 500 for easier one, but kinda expensive, so I find myself a subtitute.
All right, here are the tools I need to do this:
1. Putty ISAMU (also you can use Sanpolac, Mr.Surfacer, or even Tamiya Putty)
2. a brush (Mr.Surfacer has one already included)
3. sandpaper 500grit, we need stronger one, may use 400grit too.
4. Power glue (also you can use Tamiya Cement for easier method)
(Be careful to handle power glue, it’s dangerous to your hands >_<)
5. (not shown) cutter, or side-cutter, or even modeller's knife.
First, this is Kyrios’ foot, I choose this because the seamline is really shown.
Put the glue or cement to both of the surface, only the ones that pressed to each other.
Press them together, you may also use tool to keep them intact. Wait for about 15-30 seconds.
The parts are inseparable by now. Next, use the sandpaper to remove the seamline.
Don’t worry if your part is losing the color, this method require painting at the end…
no matter I try to find, remove seamlines means you must repaint the whole kit.
Pour down the putty, just use bit of them, don’t use too much, it will be hard to cut away later.
Wait for about 1 till 2 minutes (prefer 2-3 minutes), let the putty dry. After it dries, cut the excessive putty.
Last one, bring your sandpaper again and rub away until the lines gone. You could rub the part with your finger, and if you can’t feel the line anymore, then it’s gone.
This is after they finished. That’s why I said before we need to repaint them again.
Okay, that’s it for my second tutorial. Next one (maybe) is about removing paints from your kit.
I have to remove mine from Kyirios Noir, because I need to repaint him… again.
NB: for my fellow friends in blogspot, sorry I can’t put any comment from my office… I can view the site, but I can’t submit any comment, I wonder why… >_<
