Resin prints needs some cleanup

The small dots (circled red) are 3D printing residues

Resin printing produces a ready assembled body made of complex forms.

If you make abstraction of the time spent to draw the 3D file - this can take entire days or weeks - the printed shell out of the shipping box is immediatly superdetailed. But it is not ready to paint or to roll.

The resin printing process leaves remnants like this small "dots" who may look sometimes as rivets, but in fact they are not. The shell needs some cleanup before painting. For this, you need a cutting knife, fine sandpaper and a fiber glass brush. The dots are easy to cut, you must only take care not to cut away details.
