Well that was brilliant, I have barely started to paint the details and I've managed to lose a critical part.
I've managed to scratch up a replacement that might work. This model would never pass muster at a contest now...
Well, it might work. all of the mating parts fit. and itseems tofit into the fuselage.
Quoted TextHowever after doing some web gazing I ran across this piece by Dana Bell who's done some exceptional research regarding the colours for interiors. And it would appear Bronze green was used, well actually a mix of Zinc Chromate and black. Follow the link and read for yourself.
If you can't trust Dana Bell, you can't trust anyone. If I saw that he has made a ruling on color, I would confidently go with it.
Great work, everyone! Still struggling with whether to get moving on the Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1D to go with my Ki-84. Today may decide it.
Hi Radek I've polished out small imperfections with toothpaste before but I'm not sure if it'll help you out in this case.
I've used ammonia to remove acrylic varnish before. Don't know if that will work on Tamiya, but it didn't hurt the plastic. Maybe a test run on something scrap?
I use 70% isopropyl alcohol to remove Tamiya paints all the time. I'd use a swab dipped in it, and let it sit for moment on the part, then swab it around. It'll strip off all the clear. For the canopy I'd even dip it too. Won't harm or mare the part either.
Can't recommend this method for use trying to fix some overspray around a decal though...it does remove the paint!
