    Default Cleaning Mold lines on WOTC plastics

    Has anyone figured out a good way to clean the mold lines on the vinyl WOTC prepainted minis? Neither a hobby knife nor a file will work. Haven\'t been able to figure it out so far.

    If very very very careful, you can heat a tool and melt it.

    Also, consider chilling the model and then cutting it; I\'ve often stuck a model into ice water for a few minutes before removing mold lines with an exacto or drilling.

    better idea is to put your plastic mini in the freezer for an hour or so making it very ridged.DD:D

    I agree with the the chilling theory. It should then be hard enough.

    Seems logical enough, :)

    I\'ll give it a try and report back. Thanks!

    Immersing something in a cold liquid will chill it much faster than a cold(er) freezer where it is only chilled by a cold gas. It\'s true that the freezer will chill it colder, but I suspect you\'ll need to repeatedly coolit as you work on it as it will warm up as you touch it. Therefore, dunking it in ice-water for a minute or two will be much quicker than setting in a freezer for an hour.

    You could even stick a salt/ice water mixture in the freezer for even colder temps.
