If you’re new to working with resin, check out our previous blog which provides some general advice for the cleaning and assembly of resin miniatures. Once you’ve had a read through that article, continue to see how to assemble Victor!
A final resin production piece was used to create this guide. Always dry fit your pieces before trying to glue them to ensure a good fit!
Step 1 – Cleaning Up the Miniature
Before you start putting glue on your Victor miniature we recommend going over the miniature with a sharp X-Acto knife, cutters and some files to clean up any excess material left from the casting process. Where possible, cut away from yourself and always take your time. You can remove more material if needed, but it’s much harder to put it back! If you’re a youngster be sure to get assistance from an adult when handling sharp objects and tools!
Step 2 – Dry Fitting
With the miniature cleaned up and prepped for assembly, it’s time to dry fit the pieces to ensure everything fits as it should. In this case, we just need to make sure Victor stands on his base correctly! Remember: don’t use any glue when dry fitting!
Step 3 – Attaching Victor to his Base
As the final step it’s time to attach Victor to his base! When gluing Victor to his base, it’s worth noting that you can apply the glue to either the base, or the bottom of Victor’s feet… the choice is yours!
Note that Victor’s feet may not line up perfectly with the cut-outs on the base. No need to worry! We can fix this when basing, which will be covered in step 6 of the painting guide which you can find here.
With that complete, we’re all done! You might want to try painting him. Check out our painting guide here.
