    Does anyone have any tips for how best to remove this seamline that is running through the figure’s hair?

    It’s a 1/20 Brickworks figure, the sculpt and casting look good to me it’s just this one seamline that I’m stuck on.

    Any tips would be much appreciated. Cheers m.

    Little patience, and a nice little couple of jeweler's file and it goes away in no time. And after you get that done take the opportunity to define the hair lines a little. It will look better when you paint.

    With a model knife, remove all unnecessary, including what is in the recesses of the strands. Further, if the strands were damaged during the clearing, make a kneading of epoxy putty, stick a little material where the excess was removed, and correct the lines of the strands with a thin sewing needle. If the surface does not seem very even, you can smooth out the putty that has not yet hardened with a brush moistened in water.

    Thanks folks. Good tips, I’d not considered using thinned down filler that way but it makes sense. I’ll let you know how I get on.

    Cheers m.
