  5. 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
  6. zinc chromate green it is. thanks all.

  8. 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 .

  13. left over guitar strings.come in handy for a lot of modeling subjects.
  14. 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 .
  15. the primer is british paints grey primer enamel spray can.the green in the pic is humbrol matt light olive,also enamel.i also tried tamiya nato green acrylic but was only just better after one coat.
  16. hey guys,a little help please, i primed the bottom half of my 1/35 leopard tank,let it sit for a week or two started to brush paint and this is the result. its like the grey primer is slightly mixing with the matt light olive.I am a little concerned about moving forward on this till i work out what is going on.the turret is also primed.the body is not,and on a test bit the paint went on well.? am i doing something wrong? or is it a simple matter of more coats needed.that was just one. any help appreciated.
  17. some scratch built bits on the turret,not perfect but im happy.scratch building the tool boxes for the sides next.
  18. hi guys, taking a break from jets for awhile so started my first ever tank build.not really much to report at this stage other than i have really enjoyed this build so far.the tamiya kit is an excellent start point.fit is really good.using the west german a4 kit to build an 1A4/AS1.the build as it stands is all OOB,but i will scratch build the other parts to make it an aussie leo.once tha scratch built parts are done it will be time to prime and paint.
