Welcome to building resin kits!  Unfortunately, there isn't any fast or easy way to remove flash which is the biggest gripe against resin kits.  I would recommend using an Xacto knife with no. 11 blade to remove the larger chunks of flash, then move to jeweler's files to clean up the final configuration.

You might try mini saw blades for your Exacto. They have very fine teeth and are very thin and come in all sorts of shapes. Several companies sell them. They usually come on something like a PE fret. They are not for the larger plugs you find on resin kits, but work well on flash and in tighter places. Here's some available from Micro Mark Tools.

Which blade on the Dremel; I tried that already. Can you send a pic of the head you used? Thanks very much Brett.

I'll look for my dremel, but they make a thin cutting blade for plastic.
