Hobby Tip - Finecast

I expect it is well known out there but Finecast bends very easily with the application of heat.

Recently I had a painted model with a very misshapen weapon. Knowing that other resins - e.g. Forgeworld - can be re-posed by applying heat with a hairdryer I thought I'd take a chance.

I slowly applied heat and was able to reposition the weapon. However the interesting thing was that it did not affect the paintjob. The key was to apply the heat to the right place and to ensure things did not get too hot.

Very happy with the result. Of course I bear no responsibility if you try it and reduce your model to a pile of goo.
