This was my first attempt weathering and I hope it turned out okay. I had a blast building it and trying new techniques. The details on this kit are incredible and I enjoyed putting it together. Now, onto other projects!

Just to let everyone know. I'm not a pro. I don't have years of modeling experience under my belt and I'm not a perfectionist. I have a total of 8 models completed and with each one finished, I find that my skills improve a bit at a time. I can never aspire to some of the craftsmanship displayed on this site nor do I intend to try. But I'm going to have fun doing this anyway. I always welcome suggestions and tips on how to do things better so that I can try to improve. However, I have no intention on seeking aftermarket items or decals. I'm more of an "out of the box" kind of builder. Oh, and I don't use an airbrush. I like using spray cans and hand painting. That's about it really. Thanks for reading this long comment if you've read it to the end.....

Fun it's the one and important thing in building models, I'll take a seat and watch :)

Finished the pre-paint assembly which did not have much. I decided to give it a grey primer followed by a coat of Satin Nickel. Once done, I'll detail with shading the panel lines and adding white to the portals.

Added the final pics of the finished product. Had a blast putting this one together. Even though its a snap kit there is a good amount of detail! Enjoy the pics.

I sprayed an acrylic gloss coat on a vehicle model to shine it up and it frosted the windows (despite it being a clear gloss). Any idea on how to remove it to clear up the clear plastic?

I'll give it a try. Thanks.

Well that didn't work. Lesson learned, time to move on....

mask the area around the windows, use tamiya polishing compound and rub with an cotton swap, it worked for me :)
18. May, 14:16
Francky
oh yes, have some patience :)

Thanks Francky! I'll see if I can pick that up!

Weird, I used a toothpick to scrape off some "frosting" and it worked just fine. I actually use the same "technique" to simulate dust on a windscreen. Sorry it didn't work for you.
18. May, 18:45
Dean Martin
That's okay. I'm still learning. From now on I'll just apply Pledge Floor Wax (Future) with a brush on all future models when I require a gloss finish.

some really strange suggestion: it happened to me that a transparent part became "white" after airbrushing it with a clear coat; It was sufficient to paint a bit of the same coat on that part to turn it transparent again; Maybe try this first on a small spot?

I'll give it a try. Can't make it worse, can it?

"From now on I'll just apply Pledge Floor Wax (Future) with a brush on all future models when I require a gloss finish."

Try masking the clear parts (with e.g. liquid mask or masking tape) before spraying varnish.

So, I bought this one used from someone on a local buy and sell. Silly me, I forgot to check to ensure that the instructions were inside but found out they were missing when I got home. Does anyone know where I can get a PDF copy? There isn't one listed on this site, unfortunately.
