Well the Klear has had more than enough time to dry. I did a tank at the same time and thats dry any way!
Now for the bit I have been dreading the most: Take a kit which is painted to a reasonably satisfactory standard and obliterate it was a very well thinned down oil paint!
My initial reaction was; AAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH what have I done to it. But my pulse is back to normal and the rivits panel lines and other squiggly bits are now sporting a nice dark "shadow", so I guess it worked.
I now just need to add the serial number, give it another coat of clear and posibly a flat coat. Then I think I'm done with this one!
As this is just a fun build, is it permitted to build two? I think it would be kind of fun to find the German version of the actual 'plane that become PE 682.
As it was resprayed with british paints and wasn't in squadron service where it might have the finish adjusted or improved, depending on your point of view, I'd do it fairly matt. Not totally flat but only a hint of a sheen.
