Assembly & Instructions
1. WARNING: These kits are not for children.  They are intended for use by adults as collectibles.  Some parts can be swallowed by children and handling of this kit can be hazardous due to it's resin content and the small size of the pieces.  For young adults, adult supervision is strongly recommended.  Hands must be scrupulously washed with soap and water after touching and handling the kits.

2. Work slowly and protect your fingers, lungs, eyes, etc... while you work with any dangerous tool.

3. Hold the pieces you are working on (especially if you are using a cutter) with a leather glove or wrap the part with a thick cloth.  (Don't laugh, you can seriously hurt yourself!)

4. ALWAYS use protective glasses for your eyes when needed.

5. Keep the room in which you are working well ventilated whenever you are using glues, paints, chemicals, and drilling holes, filing, or sanding.  An appropriate mask should be worn at all times to avoid breathing fumes from chemicals and/or glues, as well as the dust when drilling, sanding, etc...

6. Don't forget that you must always wash your hands meticulously after manipulation of the parts.

7. Wear the appropriate mask during all abrasive cutting operations to protect yourself from plastic particles.

8. A description of the chemical composition of the resin used for the fabrication of these kits is available upon request.

9. Fill gaps, molding lines, and air bubbles with epoxy putty if necessary.

10. Eliminate molding lines and/or excess material such as little warts (balls of excess resin) with a cutter or a file.  These arise because of the casting process and can be easily resolved.  Or, you can smooth the piece down with sandpaper that is waterproof and of fine grain.

11. Before gluing the parts, make sure that they fit together correctly.

12.  If a part should be warped or bent, dip it in hot water, and then mold it to its desired shape.  Then immediately pass it under cold water.

13.  Glue such as Crazy Glue is appropriate for small parts.  For large parts, drill and pin with a brass rod or a piece of a big paper clip, then glue with an A+B epoxy glue that is reliable.

14 - After the kit has been built and puttied, wash it carefully with warm water and detergent to remove body grease and/or molding agents.  This will also facilitate the adhesion of your undercoat of matt paint (such as Humbrol).  NOTE:  It would be better to use 2 undercoats of thin paint rather than 1 thick one.  After 24 hours your kit is finally ready to be painted to your specifications.

    Green squadron putty, Milliput, Xacto cutter, and a mini-drill with different accessories are needed.  Also files, waterproof sandpaper of varying grains, acrylic paints, oils and enamels.  You may find most of these materials in a hobby or craft store.
