Looking forward to see the end result!
I'm no resin expert, but I'd say they make it thick on areas they know are bound to break under stress (torsion, impact, etc), to try and avoid exactly what happened to that model. Didn't work out well for that one, though...This model costs at least € 260, given the amount of resin that they used to build it, I'm not surprised with it's high price.
The resin is over 5 mm thick in some spots, that makes the model very heavy.
This is supposed to be a high-end model, but when you take it apart it's just a poor designed and bad assembled lump of resin.
The amount of resin is ridiculous.
