Now then, heres another scary proposition. I have here a MR Falcon, probably the best MR product by far. It already has a decent (ish) paint job, but in a couple of days it should have an awesome one. I must admit it is now finished, but I will post the procedure for anyone who would like some pointers to do the same to theirs.
First off I needed to find out what was possible in when removing the original paintwork. I tried a few different thinners on the surface and decided the only one which had any effect on those horrible fat arsed black streaks was a standard cellulose cleaning thinner.
I applied it to the streaks with a cloth and rubbed carefully until only the streaks lifted off. As the client wanted this to be a fairly cheap repaint, so no stripping back to the base all over, just remove offensive marks and redo them (yeah right, !!)
So here are a couple of images after the streaks have been removed and no paint applied.
I managed to remove all of the offensive yellow from the top turret and nearly all the fat streaks, so this was a very successful strip job. I decided to leave the majority of the panel colours as I didn't mind them so much, they seemed fairly accurate and would be bleded in eventually to match the studio model as much as possible. Im going for super anal detailing if I can. Theres so much to redo on this model.
