1/48 Tamiya F4F Wildcat
December 20, 2012 in Aviation
Built straight out of the box after being rescued at a yard sale. The model had been painted with a dark blue rattle can and most of the detail had been badly obscured. Luckily the paint stripped off easily with oven cleaner. I only added a set of Eduard seat-belts and a set of Aeromaster decals since the yard sale versions don’t come with them. I used “dot” technique with oil paint to weather the kit along with a post shading technique on the individual panels.
