Sticky Business

Painting of Lilla continues, slowly.

In fact there's been an element of un-painting with sections of slightly dodgy paintwork rubbed down again.

Himself has come to the conclusion that perhaps the printed body hadn't been cleaned enough before it was primed.

It certainly wasn't dunked in white spirit as some readers have suggested.

Oh well, no shame in admitting to a beginner's error because it's our first time with this 3D technology.

I'm the meantime various bits have been painted red such as the buffer beams, springs and reverser.

  1. If it's printed in resin, then it might not have spent enough time in UV light for the material to cure fully. The uncured resin can then leach out and ruin the paint.
