    Forgeworld Concern?

    I have just received my forgeworld order and had a look at them. Many of the molds have airbubbles at the edges like they were attacked by poison or something. Has this happened to anyone else? If so what did you do??

    Well I have never had that happen, but I guess if they are concave then use some putty to fill in the void areas. If they are convex, just file/cut them off. If you are really upset about it, contact ForgeWorld. I am sure they would be happy to correct the order.

    Good luck!

    Most of the time Forge Wolrd components are excellent. I would suggest emailing them with your concern and perhaps they might offer a replacement.

    The edges are occasionally a little rough but that's the nature of resin moulding really. I own many FW pieces and I cannot say I have ever been given cause for complaint.

    The arms of the Orks really look like that have been attacked by acid or even drill holes.

    Hi. Resin models often have airbubbles in them the solution is to fill them with green putty, not green stuff actual putty that comes in a tube. you can wipe it over the holes to fill and then just wipe away the extra with a rag. It is sold at hobby shops and miniature railroad shops....Squadron makes a good one for around $5...

    hope that helps. :cool:

    forge world is excellent quality ut it comes at a price, there are ocasionall small bubbles.

    obviously if there are loads of bubbles and deformitys then forge world should have sent you a differnet componenent, try contacting them and sending them pics if you want a replacment.

    if its not that bad, use putty to fil the gaps as mentioned above.

    Definitely ask for a replacement. Forgeworld is very good at replacing defective items, often with no questions asked. They usually tell you to keep the defective items too, so if you can somehow salvage the defective ones, you will essentially have twice as many models as you purchased.
