1/48 Tamiya D-520 strip and re-paint.



Stripping medium: Neat IPA, Tamiya X20A.

Paints used; Vallejo surface primer, Tamiya acrylics.

Weathering, Flory wash and pigments, Abeltung 502 oils.

Not a build thread, since it was already built, but you know what I mean:

An interesting exercise this, stripping a kit back to bare plastic.  Bit scary to begin with, and very messy, but the end results speak for themselves.  I must again sing the praises of PT Decals, too.  If they’re not as good as Cartograf then they’re pretty damn close.  I’ll certainly use them again.  p.s. It wasn't till I loaded the pics I noticed I'd bent the pitot probe on the wingtip.  Needless to say I have now straightened it!

There, that's better, I'm more than happy to put her back in the display cabinet now!

Would love to have such a nice display shelf. My build go back in a box tucked away. No space to show them and can’t bin them ether...
