Here is the result after chipping with salt and hairspray. Decals are applied afterwards.Following the landing gear alignment i’ll go on with a semi gloss coat and begin with the fading, sadly all the preshading was in vain, dunno why; might be the Gunze lacquer being too potent or the color itself is unforgiving, but no matter what the preshading went away. I post shaded with various grays and then went over with a highly diluted basecolor, same result, all the work has vanished… if it can be liven up via oils remains to be seen.
