Notice Kemper Champion V4.0 [EN]
In the next pages, i will detail step by step how to assembly the Kemper kit. I will try to be clear and specific, if you have some problems, i invite you to ask your question in the comments. I will try to answer quickly and specificly.
-I have tried to take the greatest care in the design of miniatures while maintaining a good compromise between ease, strength and level of detail.
-The models are made of ABS 3D prints, this material is acetone sencitive. That mean it's very easy to paste it with super glue. The pieces can have some littles defauts on skin dur to FDM printing. It's not a problem because the kit will be painted but if you are very exigent, you can sand down with a little file or sandpaper. Be carreful the ABS is senitive to the high temperature 80°C and more (deformations, burns,..)
-I am only a modest individual who offers kits for sale, so I have no means of production very advanced or optimized. The printers that i own are middle range printers for privates; the precision of theese machines are not perfect. Maybe you will have to adjust some holes or some défauts on the pieces. I never send unusable pieces.
