What a shame Chad... i am working on a KT from schwere-Panzer-Abteilung Feldherrnhalle (EX sPz.Abt 503) inspired by the new Canfora AFV Photobook and followed this topic with great interest..

When i made some progress on it i might post it here so your order a new KT right away

I think you can made great progress with hairspray but need to be careful with the water so you can control it more. I always spray it right on the basecoat and never had problems with it.




What is see and hear is that the new AK stuff works pretty nice and you can choose between heavy or medium chipping and it dries matt.

Good luck with your new project!

yea i learned some good lessons for this technique so was not a total loss. i had started by brushing water on the area and scrubbing after it soaked in but i had better results just wetting the brush and then dabbing it on a cloth to get most of the water out and then scrubbing. it comes off much slower that way and more controlled. will definately try this again at some point.

Next time you want to start over, try soaking in a 3:1 solution of water and Simple Green. It will completely dissolve the paint and leave the plastic alone. I did that with my T34/85 earlier in the year.

The finish was too dark...



So I soaked 'er...



The lacquer-based surface primer came off the metal but a lot of it stayed on the plastic. It was softening, too, but I didn't feel the need to completely remove it. Just make sure you rinse everything thoroughly before applying more paint.
