I was looking on their site, thinking of maybe trying an order with them, to fill out my 12mm WWII forces. I noticed on several of the pictures of their models, the T-26 and the M8 HMC as two examples, they seemed covered with raised circles almost like donuts. They were far too numerous to be worth trying to clean not to mention risking damage to the details.

They didnt appear on all models but do some of the actual printed models have these raised circles? If so will be giving them a pass.

Did not buy though might; he has a video linked from his site showing how to clear the stuff. Bothering but not so difficult; not as much as having to assemble parts that would not fit.

I saw the video but that was like flash not these dozens of raised circles all over the models. Let me know if you do buy some and how you like them.

I've bought 15mm and 20mm models and have been very pleased withthem.

Been very pleased with the 1/76 Cold War models I've had. My most recent project was substituting the Airfix weeny Grant turret with one from BPM and I'm happy with the result.

Thank you both. I may just have to do a trial order and see how the 12mm actually look in person.

Nice improvement. In one of those "duh" moments didnt even think of buying say just a turret! I have an extensive 15mm collection as well and might be just the thing for adding some variations. Thank you so much for the tip!
