I ordered and received some Pendraken resin buildings and I want to paint them. Could some of our more experienced members tell me how I can get the best results?

1. How do I prepare the model? Do I just wash & prime it?

2. What do I do to flatten the rather thick and unequal plinth underneath the buildings?

3. Once I've got them primed, do I paint the buildings 'from the inside out' like models?

4. Is acrylic paint okay or do I need other stuff?

All suggestions welcome.

Start by giving them a good wash in warm water.  The bases can be sanded down quite easily, although we are looking to buy some kind of lathe, to flatten the base down before we send them out.

 A good disc sander (ideally with extraction) will do the job for you Leon. If you need advice pm me and I can suggest some makes from the Axminster tools catalogue.
