Murphy's law

Started on doing the decals. But unfortunately, I ran into some issue with Micro Sol. May be I was a bit too generous in using the softening solution. I thought Micro Sol is safe on paint, but I guess I was wrong. I notice a dark circle around a drop of Micro Sol on top of both sidepods. On the right side, I was able to buff it out. But on the left side I was a bit too aggressive and it went through the paint to the primer. So, I masked off the decals and spray the turquoise to fix it. Now, I will have to wait for the paint to cure. I have no choice but to let it sit for 2 days.


  1. This must be one of those models that just does not want to get built. Man arer you having some issues or what. I admire your persistance and i know it will be a winner when done.
    Good luck with it.

  2. With all these fixes and patches, it's not going to be a winner for sure, but I am going to get it done.
