Hi MUTCAKE, i used a little olive oil wiped in with a lint free rag... not too much just enough to give it a glossy surface.. this a ghetto release.. as it doesnt really release, the molds are heated and the plastic gets soft and rubbery and its very carefully pulled out, this destroys the plastic part but leaves a perfect mold, there are a number of releases out there.. i havent tried them as i find the kits at this scale are cheap.. and i buy them just for the decals... so ruining a kit or two isnt a big deal.

Since i use JB-weld, it takes 24hrs to fully cure.

As for the heat... i use my kitchen oven, and i use a IR temp gauge.. got mine for 20$ with free shipping from some tea house place on ebay.
