    Separate resin parts and remove thin resin remnants with sharp blade. Please, be careful, sharp blade may hurt you or damage resin part. Clean and polish joining points of resin parts with sandpaper. Use 800–1000 grade sandpaper. To separate small parts from resin sprue please scratch the line near the part. Use sharp needle and scratch the surface several times. Break the part from the sprue and sand the surface with file and polish with sandpaper. Due to dimensions of parts remember to use small amount of cyanoacrylate glue (called often CA glue). Some wooden boxes had wooden wooden bar which was used as an handle.

    Step 2 — Priming

    Such prepared ammo box can be primed with Mr.Resin Primer Surfacer, Mr.Surfacer or similar primer.

    Step 3 — Painting

    Wooden crates most often were left with natural raw wood colours. Sometimes were covered with transparent varnish or colourless lacquer. Painted crates should be left for drying. After that you may add some weathering and make crates looking a little bit worn. When all effects are added you may install such prepared element on your kit or diorama.

    Step 4 — Weathering and finish

    Feel free to adjust your crates appearance according to your diorama weather conditions. Wooden crates could look like freshly manufactured but on the frontline could be dusted, dirty, wet or covered with mud or snow. You may add some descriptions, company names etc.
