I just purchased some great resing FW minis off ebay already assembled with super glue but I was wondering how do people unglue their minis.
See I prefer to paint my minis on the sprue and then assemble them together before the finishing touches because for a lot of stuff like riders on horses and etc paining under the corners etc is really hard when fully assembled. Also I find painting heads on a pin vise is much easier for more control and details than glue it on beforehand.
Also does plastic glue work on resin? I know plastic glue will never come off since it melts the plastic ( does it melt resin?) together.
Wow. Tough crowd. :/
Removing resing bonds is not easy. Some superglue remover is probabley the best way. Resin is full of tiny tiny holes which the glue leaks through forming a strong deep bond. applying pressure is likely to snap the model in a different area. Some thing like THIS is the best option. I would advise testing it on the underside of the model first, just incase it damages the resin.
Plastic glue will not work on resin modesl.
Sometimes you can just pry the model apart but be very careful as resin can be brittle. Take Dan's suggestion and invest in some super glue remover. Plastic glue does not work at all, super only! Make sure you thouroughly wash and clean the model before glueing or painting, especially if its a forgeworld model. If you don't the paint and glue have a tendency not to stick due to the mold release.

I bought some renegade guard off ebay that were put together and painted. After i took the paint off i just cut the resin off with a fresh blade at the joint.
