This is a cool retro/future figure I'll do a work in progress series about. The figure has been soaked in a degreaser for about a week and then washed in Dawn dishwashing liquid and dried. The seams and pour gates have been trimmed and sanded. The parts are fitted together and pinned using nails or paperclips, whichever is appropriate for the part size. Fit problems are corrected at this point. The joints are closed using plumber's epoxy putty (the dark gray stuff you see on the ends of the arms and legs). The parts are washed again and dried. They are now ready for the first primer coat. I will use gray auto primer.
