Reshaping Resin


Recommended Posts

I am building a helicopter in 1/72nd with an internal ammo box and a belt of bullets is supplied in resin. This part is in a straight line and in order to fit it from the ammo box inside of the fuselage to the gun at a window, it requires some reshaping. How can this be done withou breaking it?

Hot water or hair drier to heat it up and gently bend to shape, then dunk in cold water to set it. 

Test on scrap resin offcut first if possible!


Thanks for that Dave, I will give it a try.
