Hello everyone! As the title says. Can I get a model done? I haven't had the "mojo" for the last while and so I'll try an easy kit.

Tamiya's new 1/48 Panther D

The paint scheme I was thinking of painting is dunkelgelb with large swashes of green.

 

 

Does anyone know how to make a picture smaller??

Welcome aboard German Armour. Looking forward to seeing your build.

 

For smaller pictures. Go to edit your post and hover the cursor over the picture. Press Ctrl and then right click and a little editing box pops up. One of the options is to change size and then you reduce the pixel rate accordingly.

 

Good luck.👍

Here's a question for you all, what do you use for removing extra superglue? I was a little to generous with the stuff and now need to remove the squish-out.

Sandpaper?

There die you spill it?

No, but it's in a bad spot, in the corner on the front, between the metal hull and the little curved piece.

Also, from looking around the internet, how would acetone be?  It says to test it on the plastic to see if it doesn't damage the surface 1st.

Im not sure I've used it on my hands to get fingers unstuck ? According to this it should work ?

Most brands also sell a C/A De-Bonder to loosen or break a connection. You may want to try that route ?

The add is just an example no connection to it.
