Great looking conversion Jeff. I want to do one myself, i.e. if i ever get to lay hands on a white dtm. Does'nt look like its going to happen any time soon. Looking forward to your black dtm now. :cheers

NPR on the body and "Scalecoat II Washaway" on the windows.
This was the easiest one that I have ever done :happy
No residue at all.

Looks good in white, too! I painted the yellow mirrors on my 360 Challenge when I did the mod on that model, and there was no bleed through of the color at all ( I did go to black, though) It took a couple of coats with one of those micro-brushes, but the result was outstanding. I used a Tamiya acrylic paint for that.

Nah! :lol I'll give it a shot when I go home tonight as a test...I've got a red model I'm stripping, and I'll paint those mirrors white as a test. Initially on the 360, I used regular Testors enamel and that didn't work as well as the Tamiya stuff. :cheers

MP - where'd you get the "Scalecoat II Washaway"? I'm curious as I have a couple of ideas and they require window cleaning?

Thanks.

Hey stranger!
How are you?

HERE is where I got mine from.

The stuff works pretty well, its best if you can take the model apart and soak the part in it but the cotton swab route will be ok too, thats how I used it.

Thanks MP.

I've been busy with a few things and had focused alot of my attention to to one Bburago(that I moderate a couple of forums on).

I've also been sending a whack-o-resumes out to overseas in hopes of a change of scenery...European style.

I'll be checking in here a bit more often now.

BTW - nice changes to the site Darrick. WTG. :cheers
