One technique you might find useful on a resin kit is the following method to remove all those tiny resin details from the resin "flash" sheet. Instead of spending hours with a hobby knife and needle files anxiously separating the part from the resin try sanding that flash away.
In this case I started removing the stake pockets (26 of them) by cutting about 3 or 4 of them from the main sheet. Then I gently rubbed the piece on a sanding stick (which I happened to have handy, for larger parts - like a stock car side - use a piece of sandpaper on a flat surface). Moving the part in a gentle circular motion will make the resin paper thin. Eventually you'll find the pieces will pop right out!
