Re: Taking Apart a Sunshine Model

Frederick Freitas <prrinvt@...>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I have deconstructed a couple resin kits that needed more patience to get right.
One thing i found is being able to "gently" tweak a small screw driver on the seams; another way is with a new razor blade and a lot of slow motion; and the trusty exacto
blade which can be slid along a seam. It takes time and patience. If you hurry the task, it gets bigger to repair.
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Once you get it apart, remember to lightly sand off the CA residue to insure a complete bond when reassembling. Thankfully, I have not had to remove minute details.
Others on this list may have better ideas on this one. Most time when it happens to me, I end up drilling tiny holes and insetring wire stiffeners to hold everything together.
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Hope this helps with your question.

I disaseebled an F&amp;C NH coach by droping a Lecia M3 on it. Unfortunitly I ended up with many more parts then the kit came with.

I have a Sunshine box car kit (Seaboard DD auto car)
that did not go together well. I need to de-bond the
ACC I used to fix the roof to the sides. Does anyone
have any foolproof ideas on how to debond the ACC?
Yes, I've used ACC de-bonder, and I've tried freezing
it, but nothing's worked. Thanks!
