spitfire Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 Hi Jason, I've only just found this thread, and I can understand you renovating rather than buying new as I did the same a while back. I renovated 2 of my models when we came back to the UK to live, I built them before we went overseas (pre 1994), we came back to the UK in 2004, so my modelling had improved a bit, I used to spend ages on the interior and no time at all on the external finish, now the opposite is true. So both models had all the loose bits removed, paint stripped using brake fluid (the old nasty type), the decals had to be stripped using Brillo pads, they were pretty tough, then they were sanded smooth, all panel lines rescribed, extra external details added and new paint and decals. I thoroughly enjoyed the process, I hope you have as much fun, it sound like you are. Cheers Dennis Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
