I bought a Darth Vader resin chestbox kit from a member here.
I am still relatively new to this hobby. My only other feats are completing a Supreme Vader helmet mod (for which I followed a walkthrough) and giving my Rubies armor a repaint.
I am looking for help on how to start this kit. Should I sand all the parts or just the main box? Should I prime all the parts? There are no slots to put leather straps so how do I go about cutting them into the resin? The resin rods that came with the kit are not straight, how can I straighten them?
I have lots of reference pics but I am just looking for help on building the kit like sanding, types of glue to use, etc..... Im going for an ESB box.
These are not the only questions I have. The list is extensive. I would appreciate any and all help.... if you feel you have some valuable input then please come forward and volunteer the information regardless of whether I have asked for it or not. Maybe once we have gathered a lot of information we can archive this thread for the benefit of other who undertake a similar project.
I can post pictures of the kit if necessary. The RPF was a valuable source of information when I completed my other projects, the members were fantastic and I dont anticipate this project to be any different. I'm looking forward to the help and input.
