Is there an easy way to get the molds off of resin parts?
I have the ADATS Conversion kit from Legend and was going to buy a cheap M-113 to put it on. Then I had a brilliant idea. Put it on the extra M1131 Stryker Fire Support Vehicle that I have. I have seen some renderings of a Stryker ADATS so figured why not make my own “What If”.
Sorry I don’t know what the exact term is. On a kit it would be the sprue. So what ever you call what the part is attached to with a resin kit. Some of them break off and I can cut and sand down the rest. Just thought there might be an easier way from the experts.
My favourite tool for the large pour plugs is this:
You need to work on a v-board though, gets tricky to control the saw otherwise

The design can be simplified, the basic needs is a circular hole accessed via a narrow V-shaped notch and some method for clamping it to the edge of a table without the clamp obstructing the work area.
