    Forgot to mention the excess resin to clean and the severe warpage of the gun. The hands seems to be a little out of scale for the bigger side.

    Thank you for your comment. After all these years of Modelling I am still waiting for a resin model that does not need any cleaning!

    You can check for Kimera Models, Nuts Planet, Andrea Miniatures 3D series (EK / Purple Heart), and others who does not need cleaning.

    Do you mean without any leftovers, mold lines, casting blocks etc. Anyway that is why I prefer to make videos for showing the pieces so everyone can evaluate the work must be done. Perhaps does not mind to do some extra work to make a unique piece as no one else producing similar in this scale or other. I know a lot of people that they like the preparation stage until priming more than painting..LOL! And of course here is comes the price matter. Some have triple price for same scale and theme. We have free market and everyone follows his own way. A lot of people purchasing 3d figures by looking only the 3d image not the real casting and was really a mess.

    I agree with you Stelio’s that it’s helpful to see the raw pieces...they do look on the rougher end of the spectrum tho. It’s more a piece that one buys for the subject then the fit and finish, and when you show what people are getting into, then all is cool...it’s always disappointing to open a package and find something poorly cast or broken...from several reviewers, Julian..others..Kimera, Nuts Planet are upping the fit game, I’ve found the same with latest Andrea, and for sure Avanpost..

    Every figure will have some parting seams or flash somewhere. I've never found anything perfect either.

    Sorry but the Andrea Miniatures 3D series still need clean up as per my review I did. Plus the weapon wasn't as detail as others and I don't care for the metal parts as they aren't as detailed/crisp as the resin parts from other companies. They do look good, stance and all but not perfect Alpine are better cast and weapons are better, kills the metal parts in Andrea kits
