1/48 Spitfires, I know that I'm a serial starter...

Put it away for at least a week, perhaps longer. I'm sure you can recover it with judicious sanding and patch-painting. 

 

And it might work out for the better. The Mk.XVII at FAA Museum Yeovilton has a very similar crinkly finish!!

Thank you Sir, My daughter said the same "It's an old Aircraft, so it look realist "

I'll do just that, I have another one almost RFIed.

Wise words indeed !

Sincerely.

Do what Killingholme said put it away for a while then come back to it.  

 

I have some foam sanding pads I bought from the local car factors.  They are used for polishing paint finishes on cars and can be used wet or dry.  Judicious use might be the way ahead.  Little bit at a time and good luck...

Ouch!

That must sting!

As all others have said, put it to on the shelf for a while so you don't do something rash, that usually leads to more troubles.

Start a new kit or five instead 🙂

The foam sanding blocks might be a good solution, I'm sure you'll get it sorted. 

Leave it alone for a few days or weeks,  it won't look so bad when you go back to it.

Oh what a right royal pain up the bottom. 😥 I can’t belive that. 

What paint do you use again? I have never had that problem with Tamiya top coat. Maybe thinking about it once. But only when I sprayed too close on a cockpit, I can’t remenber which one now but it made the paint shrink slightly and looked horrid. I use Tamiya paint “acrylic” .

I hope you get her sorted CC. She’s a great lookin’ bird. 😊

mall the best kind sir.

Hello John,

In fact, they were !! The Seafires were grounded on the spot as soon as they exited the war zone on account of severe wrinckling !

That show the courage and devotion to duty of the British FAA

Not only going to war but on out of tolérances old aircrafts….

These guys show more than courage I think !

Now I will not hide myself behind that fact, the pic at hand show pretty well maintained aircraft

That's why I restraint myself on weathering, before the :poo:at least !!

Sincerely.
