The first proper post on here will be the first of many all about my newly purchased Storm Eagle gunship from Forge World. The current retail price of this resin/plastic hybrid kit is a cool £80 (actually closer to £90 with shipping) and unfortunately for me, a lot of these components have arrived quite seriously warped. Not a happy camper in truth.
Called Forge World.
Forge World said (albeit nicely): “Get over it and put the components in hot water for 10 minutes, then reshape them “.
So I am in the process of doing exactly that. Not too big a chore I know but really, the quality control should be better.
Cleaning, trimming and assembling models is a lengthy process in itself – I shouldn’t have to reshape parts of the kit as well!

Anyway, the work has begun and I will report back with updates.
*** UPDATE ***
This is where I am after about 5 hours of work on reshaping and reshaping and reshaping some more.
