    stripping old paint.

    Gents, i was given an airfix 1/48 hawk kit which i am very keen to turn into a RAAF LIF bird. Now the kit has not been started,but was sprayed with something while still on sprues.i am not sure how long ago this was done but a good soaking over night with Mr Muscle in a sealed container and scrubbing next day with toothbrush did nothing to remove any paint.. The rough surface and slight bubbling the kit had before i attempted to remove is still present..any suggestions,ideas,words of wisdom or guidance to help with this problem ? i can only think to drown a second time in oven cleaner or lightly sand the worst affected areas. please help haha.i really want to build a nice bird from this kit. Thanks in advance .

    RAAF F111 tail skid/bump.

    Gang,any of my aussie pig fans or ex fraimes or anyone in the know tell me if it is zinc chromate yellow or green or if another color? I am asking about the area that the tail skid retracts up into.im doing an 80s SEA scheme . any help pics much appreciated.
  9. Hi all, as description says. is there a way i can fade/dull the model? i did a Chinook but had to use automotive clear from spray can.its just too shiny for my taste. i would say its too late to do anything about it now as its been done for months but it really bugs me every time i look at it. any advise is welcomed .

    left over guitar strings.come in handy for a lot of modeling subjects.
  15. it was humbrol matt 86,not using it now,went with tamiy xf67,nato green. i should add that i had the same issues with humbrol matt 84 on the primed part.had to do 4/5 coats and its still not that good.on the un primed surface there are no issues so i wont be priming the main body .
