I too have a resin kit waiting to be made and it's the Planet Waves three-engine Schnellbomber...I'm petrified about mucking the thing up so this thread is pretty useful to me as well

There is no super-secret IMHO to building resin kits.  Just take your time and be careful.  You might need some extra fettling to make the pieces fit properly but in my opinion, in many cases they fit better than many injection moulded kits do!   Be careful though, superglue can be quite difficult to remove from your fingers and other parts of the anatomy!   :banghead:

First remove the pieces from their moulding blocks - I tend to use a razor saw for that.  Then sand them down, to remove any blobs/projections/etc.  Then stick them together.   :thumbsup:

Always wash the parts before you superglue them together. Some parts fit well whilst others have gaps or are wrapped. Wrapped parts can be reshaped if put into hot water.
Take your time, you can rescribe panel lines when the build is nearing completion.,

Bring the wings to the rear & the tail-planes forward to just behind the engine in a canard lay-out. Pull the cockpit back to just forward of the leading edge of the (revised location) wing & fit a nose wheel aft of the engine.

Probably need to shorted the main landing gear & juggle it so that they deploy outwards, rather than inwards, too.

Sadist! XD

If you want to take a look at the inspiration behind the mini-truck, it's the one use to move the family's belongings to their new home right at the beginning of the movie...

Found this earlier - well, a shorter version.  Not too sure of the tune - it's quite grating and screechy but it fits the images well.
