What type of tool would I use to cut and convert resin models?
Oh, hobby knife...nevermind.
You would be better off with a sharp modellers saw, if you intend to be removing legs etc. X-acto are probably the most famous make. Don't forget, the dust created is a health hazard if you inhale it, so wear some kind of gauze mask and vacuum up your work area afterwards.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
Keep in mind, though, that ALL dust is a health hazard if you inhale it.
IMO, (and it is STRICTLY AN OPINION) resin dust gets pointed out a bit more than other types (like plastic).
Anyway... clippers work best for removing large chunks. What bit remains should be carved/sliced off with a hobby knife (remember, cut AWAY from yourself), then the last bit filed smooth.
Hope this helps!
