- Wash all sprues in warm water with dish soap and let air dry. This will remove any mould
release agent and oils from the moulding process.
- Use furniture tack rags for wiping parts prior to painting, this will remove any lint or
dust from your parts; this also works for cleaning airbrush glass bottles.
When building a kit I usually clean up all the parts first and store them in a
case according to the colour they will be painted. I just make sure I can easily
distinguish similar parts. If not, I group the left and right side parts
In the picture, the case contains ALL the prepared parts for the Tamiya 1/12
Yamaha FZR750R (OW01). I also use film canisters to hold very small parts. The case also
has a transparent lid to protect the parts and has adjustable divider_r1.gifs. The case also
allows me to conveniently stack several kits in progress.
