    I just washed and rinsed the model of Ch’n-Han 75mm one of the Five Cyclones from
    Modeland .it As I’m new to working with miniature figures I wanted to confirm my thoughts on the building before priming. I was thinking of doing sub-assembly on the figure as I see from the pictures the arms will be close to the body which will make painting a completed figure difficult. Look forward to your feedback

    Pictures! Pictures! :D

    Yes, you've got the right idea. I'll do as much assembly as I can, without interfering with painting details

    Thanks Brad. I had trouble uploading a photo because it was too big. Trying to figure out how to minimize it from my iPhone photo library. I think I might have figured it out 85089743-2B5A-414A-896D-32700C3E6CEE.jpeg

    Hi Anne

    Being a bust only painter ...of sorts ! ......I make up bust fully after washing , drying and priming in a Matt black spray and then mounting on the actual base

    Nice picture of the resin , looks detailed

    Look forward to more on the WIP ....why not start a thread in VBench

    Always happy to help ref pics or anything else

    Happy benchtime

    This piece didn’t come with a base. Will hopefully be getting one soon. Thanks for your tip I’ll post on VBench sometime this week

    Hi, Anne, no sweat!
    From a look at the kit, it looks like it's been engineered to allow for painting some bits separately and then attach them relatively simply. The arms, for example-the right one can be attached once that sleeve is finished, and the left one looks like the seam was placed with care to put it along a natural horizontal detail. You're on the right path with your idea.
