I'm thrilled to have a King Chopper without spending $500 for it, buuuut... I was hoping to go with the bare molded plastic color, just do a toothpaste polish to bring out the shine, but there is a LOT of flash that must be scraped away and some of the braces on the sprue are so thick that even carefully cutting the parts off left some big gouges that will have to be filled and sanded. So it looks like I'm going with paint on this one. Still love it though!

When I have sprue attachments like that.....it takes time, but you can remove them w/o issues. 1. use sprue cutter or good wire cutter to cut sprue about 3/4" from part. 2. use a fine razor saw to cut off sprue leaving about 1/16" stub. 3. using sanding sticks sand down the stub, start with rough file and when you get close to the part start using finer and finer. I end up using a stick that is almost smooth. Flash can be done the same way. Also sanding kits made to polish paint jobs are perfect for polishing bare plastic.
