Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang

Well I tried! I rubbed down the affected areas but where I got down to bare plastic then resprayed the model these areas stood out like a sore thumb so fuck it, the nuclear option was deployed;

The model is back to bare plastic, unfortunately there was a lot of interior green paint leaking out. I’m hoping it was just from the wheel wells as I can respray that area but if the cockpit paint is affected then it is totally fucked. Some cockpit parts need touching up and the seat belts have come loose so we’ll see when the model has dried out if the project is worth pursuing.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
