Runs and bubbles happen to the best of us. Nothing a little 600+ wet-or-dry won't cure. Wing looks nice. I said it once and I will say it again, this is going to be one cool model. It's Aoshima, so I am assuming this doesn't have an engine bay?

That would be correct senor


Right now, I'm trying to use 600 grit sandpaper to get rid of them, but the paint hasn't dried well enough for me to sand it out >.<

Thats one of the worst times lol...you can't do anything but wait or else you'll really botch your paint. I found that out the hard way.

Its, allivveeeeee. After an entire year. Really been that long o.O

Well, I still tried to fix the paint problems. Then I messed up. Bad. Lots of bubbles.





So, I'm starting from square one again. So right now I'm in the process of sanding/ paint thinnering all the paint away. Then I'm going to sand it a little, put down some primer, then hopefully put down a good coat of yellow paint.



Le process:

Well, still continued to work on getting rid of the paint.






Got the side bits loose so I could remove more paint.




But when I tried getting the front bit off, I snapped the nubs that it was attached to :'(




There were still little bits of paint left in the cracks which were annoying to get to X(





Fast forward a day~~~

and I got all (well, at least most of it) removed and glued it back together






One of these days when I have time I'll prime it then paint it yellow if I have enough paint left.

Spray painted...







It's got a bit of a rough spot near the front, so I just need to sand it down and give it one final coat.

So I may have put this off for a little bit. But I've finished it (albeit I'm missing a few pieces...).
