Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

After touching up a couple of areas, the model got a light overspray of a very thinned basecoat;

…..and after!

Looking at the two photo’s there doesn’t seem to be much difference after overspraying but there is. All I need to do now is paint the anti-glare panel on the nose, the leading edges of the wings and fin then it will be ready for the gloss coat prior to decalling.

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.

  1. Hi Andy,
    Are you going to be a Hataka Orange Line convert too? I have been using them for about a year now, and I just wish I had found them sooner! I was getting fed up with trying to spray fine camo patterns, but spending more time cleaning than spraying when using acrylics. I bought a boxed set, but thought I would just use my mr.hobby levelling thinner Liked the paint, but still didn’t like the smell. When I eventually thought I could somehow justify spending more money I ordered some of the Hataka thinner. I have a real problem with cellulose thinners, I wear a respirator and I have extraction and still end up with a thumping head after. With the Hataka I have no problems at all. Did you get round to cleaning out your compressor tank and hammeriteing the inside?

  2. Hiya, I wouldn’t say I’m a convert, it’s just Hataka have a good selection of Luftwaffe RAL colours that I need for a couple of projects. Tamiya and Mr Hobby will still be my ‘go to’ paint. 🙂
    Regarding the air tank I haven’t got around to filling it with Hammerite yet but thank you for reminding me 🙂
