Shiki Progress

This is a repaint of my MG Hyaku-Shiki. The first picture is of the Shiki before anything was done.

The first step in repainting this model is to remove the paint. There are several methods for removing paint, and I chose the 409 method. Basically, soak the parts that need paint removal in 409(cleaning fluid) for approximately 24 hours, then wash in soap and water and the majority of the paint should be dissolved. Remaning chrome or gunk is easily removed with rubbing alcohol. Here are some pictures of the 409 bath and the resulting parts while drying.

The following picture is a side by side comparison of the leg part before and after priming.

These last pictures are in progress paint sessions. The Shiki is completed and pictures can be seen here. Completed Hyaku-Shiki
