Hi Owens.

 

Basically; yes you can but if you've already used Acrylic paint it can be removed with Meths and water without afecting the model. Then you could start afresh with a decent primer coat. Hope this helps.

One part you missed between steps ! & 2 is build the model up to the main painting stage, but I'm sure youalready Know that and taken it as a given.

 I am offended by those who offended the offenders for offending the offensive offence.

I am offended that the "Daily Heil" feels that it has the right to be offended on my behalf!

 

Brilliant! Couldn't have phrased it better.

Trumpeter Fw 200c-4, and today heard that a new mdel shop had the 1/72 Academy Opel Blitz in both early & late cab versions so I had to go & check it out, also came away with the 1/72 Blitz & Itateri battlefield building set and the 1/72 Opel Blitz ambulance. I'M building up quite an array of blitz's at the moment & it all started with the Airfix Pak 40 with an Opel Blitz truck.

 

Also treated myself to an O sable brush I almost choked at the price of R 225, A normal sythentic (nylon) one that size is about R 15. Still you can't beat quality as I find the synthetic brushes soon loose there point.

Hi All.

 

I really must remember to use my spell check more often.

PS Thanks for the heads-up about the daily mail, things have certainly changed since I last lived in the UK, and good-on-ya Airfix keep up the innocent good work. JtP

Hi Snipper.

 

That looks to be a very nice clean build, well done, and thanks for showing a rare bird not often seen on this forum, hopefully Airfix might look at a re-release as cold war era jet's seem to making a comeback. 

 

Tanks again and keep them coming.

Hi Rafael & Daniel.

 

Welcome to the Forum and looking forward to hearing abaout youradventures and seeing the results.

 

At 16 I was starting to get interested in work, motor bikes, etc ( That was a lom long g time ago ) and modelling was starting to take a back seat, but it never really goes away. Daniel I don't know how far you,ve prgressed in your modelling but you might find the techniques forum a good place to start to find about some new tricks and methods you could use, well worth a browse. Even after over 50 years of modelling I'm still leaning new things.

Hi Ratch

 What scale are the figure sets John?

 

1/72 scale And brought some more today including a superb German WW 1 infantry set and it was cheaper than the Airfix set.
