Warped/Twisted Parts

Postby Dean1700 » Mon May 08, 2017 7:20 pm

Hey Plastic Addicts,

I bought an Airfix Meteor F8 recently and have noticed the fuselage halves are twisted, one more than the other.

What methods can I use to straighten them and which is the best way?

Cheers

Boiling hot water, or take it back.

Do I tape the parts down to a flat surface and would it affect any of the thinner/smaller areas?
