How do you prepare the plastic model for painting
I've just starting using water-based paints instead of my old standard: Floquil. From all I've read concerning acrylics, there is great emphasis on washing in detergent and water. (I've usually used solvent alcohol to remove oils.) My concern is not so much with solid structures like buildings, but with fragile structures like bridges and towers: anything that is more truss than solid surface. I'm getting quite a line of projects on my shelf, that need paint.
So the question is: What do you do to prepare models for painting? Problems? Cautions?
