Hi all,

I have painted my Tamiya 1/32 Mitsubishi Zero with Tamiya paint and have sprayed Ammo mig Matt varnish over the top. I would like to weather the aircraft but as I am new to this, my question is can I put enamel washes/panel line wash over the model and it won't ruin my model?

One other question is if I put Tamiya Flat Clear over the top can I still put enamel washes/panel line washes over the model?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi Johnathan,

You can apply the panel line wash over the top of a Matt varnish... but it works best (and is easier to clean up again) if you use either a gloss or semi gloss varnish as a base instead. With the Matt varnish, you risk staining the paintwork around the panel lines, as the wash will tend to soak into the grain of the matt paint, which is near impossible to remove again. (Gloss has little to no grain which allows you to wipe any excess wash away again) In saying that, this effect is sometimes desirable, depending on what you want to achieve etc.

You also greatly reduce the risk of getting "silvering" when decals are applied over a clear gloss varnish. Just ee sure to seal them under another gloss coat before applying a wash to prevent any seepage from running beneath them.

For what it's worth, I always seal my paint (and decals) with Tamiya X-22 clear gloss (mixed 50/50 with Tamiya lacquer thinner) then apply a panel line wash (usually enamel based) then, after cleaning it up, I finish with a final clear coat of Tamiya XF-86 Flat clear... again mixed 50/50 with lacquer thinners.

You can achieve a more "Satin" finish from the flat clear by diluting it with more thinner in a ratio like 25% paint to 75% thinner, and applying it in a very light coats to gradually break down the glossy sheen etc.

Try a small section on the underside of the fuselage first to see how you go rather than doing the whole thing at once. That way you won't run the risk of ruining it if it doesn't work out to your liking.

Hi James,

Thanks for your info. I am going to practise first before putting it on.

I do have some armour kits with interiors, can I do the same or is it different?

Thanks,

Jonathan

The same method/approach applies, but rather than applying the wash to panel lines... your applying the wash to the outlines of raised details instead. Cleans up again exactly the same way with a cotton bud lightly moistened with either "white" or "odorless" spirits.

The aircraft carrier that this Zero was on is called "Soryu".

Thank you mate, I used to know all the tail codes. It's been a while. Great history on that attack!

I am thinking of building a P-40B Kittyhawk which fought the Zero at Pearl Harbour, but unsure what is the best kit for the P-40B in 1:32 scale. Any ideas let me know.

Thanks Jim, I thinking of building the P-51D Mustang after I have built my BT-7 tank. I am looking forward to it!
