Rough finish

I just finished the eduard hetzer and applied a coat of tamiya dark yellow. To my dismay the finish came out very rough. It has the infamous pebbly look. My question is can I sand with very fine sand paper and redo finish? Or do I have to totally strip all the paint?

There is less work involved if you just strip the paint and start over.

EZ Off Oven Cleaner

Put your model in a gallon size food storage bag. Spray a heavy coat of EZ Off onto the model. Let sit for about 4 hours. Come back and run under warm water, using an old toothbrush to scrape away tougher paint. Do it sooner than later -- less curing time for your Tamiya paint, the more likely it'll come off.

Orange skin...

June 3 2012, 10:06 PM 

Hi Anonymous,

I say the culprit is your best friend, when dealing with orange skin surfacing.

Airbrush with 99% ISO alcohol and spray away the paint... Speaking for myself only, I used that method with the help of a brush for the hard to reach places and it worked great. CA glue will not be affected by alcohol also.

Hope this helps.

I do a complete kit in a plastic box and do 1-2L (its cheap) of the fluid.
after some minutes I strip the acrylic paint with an old shawing brush.
the kit is like new.
hope this helps
