Everything was washed in warm soapy water and left to air dry the moment it entered the house a month or so ago.  There’s no reason not to do this with any model. No matter the material or production method, so you may as well always do it.  If you run in to issues and you didn’t, you’ll regret it.  I’ve had problems in the past.

My core box was second hand so Doc Ock, Spiderman, Ultron, Iron Man, and Captain America were preassembled, and Captain Marvel was mostly built too.  I finished of building the set, but did not glue anyone to their bases.  I prefer to paint people separately.  It allows better access to the model, and you can be messy with the base without risk to the character.  I did put pins the models feet and drill matching holes in their bases.  These pins will also be used to hold them on to milk bottle tops for painting.  They’re a lot cheaper than hobby holders.  This all took about one evening after work one day.  I’m only working on the characters for now.

I also prepped the Tyrant for Kingdom Death while I was working on this.

Everyone got pinned or blu taked on to bottle tops and was then primed black with Stynylrez black primer and a little airbrush thinner (3-4 primer : 1 thinner.  I put 10 drops of thinner in the cup and then fill it most of the way with primer, then mix).  The models going metallic or black were then put on one side and I then tried to zenithally prime the rest with Vallejo Grey Primer 72.601.  My airbrush was playing silly buggers though and was just spitting, and when it sprayed, it was all going at a funny angle.  I sorta coated everything though and it’s good enough for my purposes here. That’s another evenings work all done.

My airbrush then spent a long while in an ultrasonic cleaner, and a few hours in a fresh batch of cleaning solution (Water, with a little dish soap and a large squeeze of Airbrush Cleaner).  My airbrush has been having issues lately.  I was afraid this was then end for it.  I’ve had it for 8 years and it’s done a lot of heavy lifting.  Had it work out?  I’ll find out tomorrow.
