|Dry fitting of parts is actually quite okay....|
|I made a jig for mounting the seat rails |
from MDF and a styrene strip
that slides into the C-profile:
|I cut paper templates of the armor plates |
to get the diminsions right ...
|I then cut the plates from 0.5 mm alu sheet, |
the alu is quite soft which makes it
tricky to cut and drill. Parts need to be
polished and cleaned.

|Chemical stage 1: Base coat, e.g. dark green from Tamiya.|
Use colors with acrylic resins like Tamiya and Zero Paint.
Make tests of the described procedure prior to paint your model!
|Chemical stage 2: Apply a thick coat of hairspray|
and let it stay for 30 secs. Then rise with warm water.
The alcohols and solvents in the hairspray will
chemically alter the base coat. See change of color between
the upper 2 pictures!
|Physical stage 1+n: Carefully treat the surface with|
tools like wooden chisels. Be careful not to score comletely
through the paint work when using metal tools!
