PML Lunar Express Build, Part 12, Landing Pads Fin Details
The pods are very well cast from resin. They are smooth and show no flaws at all.
They are two part, the upper and lower flat gluing surfaces were sanded flat with 220 grit on a block.
Here's the low end, the pod is turned upside down. This is a dry fit.
There is a small dimple on the bottom which I won't be filling.
A fair amount was set on the flat of the longer end and the bottom pressed into place. Any CA glue that ends up on the outside is easily sanded off.
When the seams were sanded smooth there was virtually no line at all! I wish all pre-formed parts went together as easy and clean.
