Well, that's unfortunate. Now I want one of these.

 

That aside, this looks like it'll be a blast to put together and paint. Can't wait to see it coming together!

Could that be uncured resin or something?

 

Ship is looking cool though, I kinda want something like this one day.

That was what I was wondering. I hope not, because isn't it an allergen or something? Anyhow, I've tried to dig out the softest of it and will probably just cover over the rest with epoxy.

 

Gelaendestuecke has a charming English version of its site, by the way. Here's their English page for my model:

http://www.gelaendestuecke.de/onlineshop/product_info.php?language=en&info=p359_schiffsbausatz-no--2.html&

 

I don't think they have anyone who really understands English doing the translating, certainly not proofreading it. It's comprehensible, but also charmingly off.

 

It's the quality of their models that matters anyway.

Nice project Pingo!

 

You are certainly right about resin dust. I bought myself an appropriate NIOSH mask when I started working with resin models.

That soft gooey stuff is weird. I've never seen resin like that. I have, however, seen a russian resin garage kit that used lard as mold release. The kit was over a decade old when it came into my hands, and was pretty nasty. But I was so happy to have parts to build a 1/35 panzer I Bison.

 

And not a week after I finally cobbled the thing together, which was the most evil assembly job ever . . . Dragon released their vastly superior 1/35 Bison I kit.

Probably. If they didn't mix it well enough, or the conditions were bad for curing, or if the resin was old, spots inside could stay gunky. Better to find them all now, because if Pingo uses a spray primer, like from Krylon or another such car primer, it can react with even heretofore unseen gunky resin under the surface, and start to bleed.

 

Bleeding resin is a major pain on a half-primered model.

 

Edited for advice: Hold the pieces up to a strong light, like sunlight and look for dark spots beneath the surface. That will represent the areas of still-liquid resin. Poke 'em and drain 'em if you can, then patch the holes with something that dries like hard plastic, like Magic Sculpt (it works really well as a Bondo for resin models. That should take care of it. Like I said, if spray primer touches the outside of such an area before it is drained, there is a chance it will react and bleed.

Huh. When I made my previous post, I had seen all the pictures but none of the text. I really thought it was just a photo essay.

 

So yeah. Odd.

 

The gunk stuff seems, as has been pointed out, like uncured resin, so I hope you can do something about that before painting.

 

Have you thought about how to do the sails, yet, or is that a step too far as yet? Given this ship's start as a chem experiment, you should consider doping up some paper sails. Fun times ahead!

While I was composing the post I accidentally hit submit. I had to do a quick edit, and by then you'd already commented.

 

The center of the white stuff is soft and waxy, and I think I've dug most of that out. The white stuff around it is harder, but it clearly had only a thin film of the hard grey stuff over it.

 

I was thinking of making the sails of fine canvas and painting images on them.

pingo I just wanted to say thanks for the warning on sanding the resin, I hadn't heard anything about this and wouldn't have thought twice about it.

 

ditto. I have a resin Battletech dropship sitting in my mountain of models awaiting work. Now I know to be very careful when I work on it.

Corporea quickly likes all of Pingo's posts she can find today. Happy Boat-Building Day!

 

In related news, how brittle is resin for sanding? I'm working on an order of the stick mini (mask on, no fear) and gently sanding, but I'm afraid I might break it if I'm too vigorous.

      Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/printablescenery/clorehaven-and-the-goblin-grotto
       
       
      The picturesque town of Clorehaven  
      A lively tavern, a variety of interesting and useful stores and fine lodgings is all the weary adventurer could ask  for.
      The locals seem polite and friendly. The beautiful stone and wood buildings tell you this small town is prosperous and will someday grow into a much larger city. But under the surface of the town, Clorehaven keeps a dark and foreboding secret.  
      Beneath the neat hedgerows and well-kept homes there lies a sprawling complex of caverns. 
      The deep goblins are a sniveling race of green-skins, plying their trade in the strange flora and fauna they gather from around mysterious pools. 
      Design and build your own medieval buildings using the Clorehaven OpenLOCK system. From simple houses to huge complex structures, anything is possible. 
      Explore the Goblin Grotto using the modular Grotto cavern system. Walls and floors can be combined to create a huge variety of underground caverns or above ground structures. 
      Who knows what’s in store for those above and what lies in the depths below. Clorehaven and the Goblin Grotto - By Printable Scenery - the best 3D printable scenery in all the worlds. 
      All the models from Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto are delivered as optimized STL files to print on home 3D printers.
      If you take the All-In Pledge, you also receive the free bonus items.   
      Clorehaven Pledge :   Clorehaven is constructed using the OpenLOCK tile system where quality detailed modular and functional buildings can be constructed in any shape and size whilst maintaining the true 1" grid system used for most role playing games. 
      This pledge contains the models to build the Townhouse, Cottage, Homestead, Grand Hostel, Cabin, Tavern, Chalet, Watchtower and Schist Stone Fences.  The Clorehaven Pledge includes the stretch goals labelled Clorehaven.
       As the Kickstarter progresses the free stretch goals will grow and expand Clorehaven from a town into a city.
      Goblin Grotto Pledge:  The free form caverns create natural and expansive cavern maps and tunnel systems quickly and dynamically. The cavern floors are designed to have a comparable 1" grid system for RPG whilst still maintaining the natural rock form.
       PLAY This pledge contains the Moon Effigy, the Goblin Cavern Floors, The Cavern Walls, The Cavern Tunnels, the Cavern Bridge, Rickety Bridges and the Gloom Creeper. The Goblin Grotto Pledgeincludes the stretch goals labelled Goblin Grotto.
       All of our 3D-printable models begin their life as hand drawn concepts. From there we digitally sculpt the models to create high detail STL files. The models are test printed and painted before released so that you know each model from Printable Scenery will print perfectly. 
       Printable Scenery created the OpenLOCK system in 2016. Since then it has become the standard. Its innovative seamless locking system revolutionized dungeon system. Printable Scenery open-sourced the design and it allows for free commercial use to third party designers such as Open Forge.
      The Free Stretch Goals are a big part of our Kickstarters. The more stretch goals we hit, the more models you will get. So join us in this grand adventure and discover the stretch goals beyond.  
       



         The bonus items listed below are free with the All-In Pledge.

      I didn't see this listed so:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery
       
      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      About
      Welcome to our fourth project and one which is a little different to the previous two. While our projects for the resin models will be continuing latter this year and early next, we decided to run a small kickstarter alongside some other projects which we are doing.
      One of the things which our local gaming community has always been big on is the creation of great looking gaming tables and key to that is to have great looking terrain. While there is an abundance of Imperial terrain now available both through various stores and a tremendous amount online, there is often a significant lack of xenos/alien themed terrain to suit the non Imperial factions.
      Sadly terrain is also one of the more expensive things to ship internationally and so has always been a hurdle for many players and groups. With the growing popularity of 3D printers and prevalence of print hubs scattered around the world these hurdles are starting to break down.
      With this project we hope to provide people with some nicely detailed buildings with a strong Space Elf feel. The buildings are quite large and should provide both lines of sight blocking terrain and areas for more mobile units to land on higher ground. The pledge rewards are for the STL files themselves to allow you to go and print your own, there are no physical rewards, however if you need help finding a print hub to get your files printed, we will certainly try and help you with that as well.
      There are three buildings in total, backers pledge for one (AU$15), two (AU$30) or all three (AU$40) buildings. The rewards are for personal printing, not commercial or distribution.

      About
      Mystic-Realm's Quick Cave & Cavern System
      In this campaign we deliver to you a stand alone wall-less terrain system that will work with the terrain you already have.
      QCS terrain is designed to get the tabletop adventure assembled quickly! Each chamber ranges in size all the way up to nearly 8 inches x 8 inches.  Lay down one chamber sections [encounter] at a time as your players progressing though the adventure [fog of war style] or pre build the entire adventure with a quickness. 
      The wall-less design and large pieces make for easy painting, easy transport and playable in any direction.   Playable in any direction? YES! Aside from being able to play off any edge each chamber is double sided! 
      This Kickstarter will include the Base System set 1, Stalagmites set 1, Pools set 1 and the 6 pieces Junctions set 1.  For stretch goals the QCS will expand to include - Twist & Turns set 1 and Bridges set 1.  Each set includes 4 double side themed chamber pieces.  Printing two of each double sided chamber will give you 8 unique playable chambers for each set.  So each set is pretty big and provided more than enough encounters for an evening adventure.
