Games Workshop Space Marine Bike is not included and is only shown to illustrate the scale & size of the part.This item is not a toy and is not intended for children under the age of 12.

 

Some minor clean up and flash removal may be needed. It is suggested that you wash resin parts in soapy water with a mild dishsoap to remove any left over release agents and oils prior to painting.

Excessive heat may damage resin products. Do not leave resin parts in hot areas (such as a car) or in direct sunlight as it may damage the model or cause the parts to warp. Warped resin items can usually be straightened by soaking the part in a cup of hot water (not boiling) until it becomes soft, then carefully bending the part back into proper shape then allowed to cool. 


 

Modelling Tips:

Due to their very small size this part is not recommended for beginning modelers. The round shape makes them difficult to grip with tweezers and they like to roll away if dropped. When preparing this part trim the sprue with a pair of clippers leaving a small amount of resin between the part and the clippers. Once you've cut the exhaust free of the sprue carefully cut the remaining resin flush with a hobby knife and sand or file if required so that the bottom of the exhaust is completely flat.

When mounting the part apply a tiny drop of super glue on the main model, then use a very thin sewing needle or the tip of your hobby knife to carefully poke the exhaust part which will cause it to stick loosely to the blade or needle and allow you to manipulate the part much easier than trying to do it using your fingers.

Position the exhaust part and make sure the vent lines are level before pushing it into contact with the glue and the bike model. Let it hold for a second so that the glue grips the exhaust part and you should then be able to remove the blade or needle without leaving any visible marks on the resin.
