My Dragon Jagdtigers all have significant warps in the upper and/or lower hulls, a phenomenon I have not encountered before. I am tempted to try the hot water trick to fix them but before I do so, can anyone who has done this successfully offer any tips to avoid bending the wrong parts? I am thinking that partial submersion offers the best chance.
To be honest I wouldn't try. Very gentle flexing of resin parts yes, but styrene? I've had this problem in the past and would recommend leaving it. Use a very thin super glue when joining upper hull etc. and this should hold the warping straight.
I once had an old Airfix 1/32 Grant with a warped upper hull and tried to bend it on hot water. The result was a completely shrinked front part that will never fit again. So be careful with the hot water trick. Maybe slightly heating with a hairdryer might be succesful.
