T-62 – Syrian Rebels’ Spoil – Trumpeter’s 1/35 kit Part 2admin
Since the rust layer was applied, a lot has changed in the plans for completing that project. After the first camouflage color, which was pale green, a hairspray layer was applied. It went OK, and with the few chips here and there, the rust started to stand out quite nicely.
Then, second layer of hairspray was added. I haven’t sealed the green
with any varnish, and that caused the first problem. My hairspray /well, not mine, but the one I use for modeling…/ has the strongest bond formula, and that went kinda harsh on the model. If sealed with varnish it wouldn’t be a problem. If less hairspray used, it wouldn’t be a problem, but the chipping might go wrong /too few chips/. If I used lower grade hairspray – no sealing required, and it would’ve been perfect.
However, all those notes above – discovered the hard way.
After the hairspray started reacting, it kinda made the green to fade and at some points to show the primer. The good thing was that the points that this happened were few and easily corrected.
I waited a bit, and a chipped it again. Thankfully it went OK.
