Default Boeing 737-200 Herpa wings Paint issue

Dear Friends,

I bought a Herpa wings 559430 model this week. When I opened the box .... unpleasant issue ... scratches on the paint of the nose of the model ... Is there some way that this can be repaired?

I was looking for Revell paint, discovered number 32109 which is the Lufthana Antracite ... Can that work?

I am really sad about this model ...

Not a big issue in my eyes...

Just take a black edding pen, that will work better than any paint, which will be too thick, which you will badly see...

For the first issue there aren't problems to fix it easily, but for the second one I believe there are no solutions.

It can not be gentle rubbed and repainted again? It must be possible to repainted somehow ... if you look in youtube the Die-cast restorations .. ?

Try Meguire's No.7 car polish on a cotton swab for the paint issue on the belly. For the issue on the nose get a very fine tip modeler's brush. Get testor's enamel (not acylic) gloss black or your choice of model paint. Get testor's paint thinner or whatever brand you like. Get a piece of cardboard box or anything to serve as a pallet. Dab some black paint on a toothpick and place on pallet. Dip brush in thinner and then dab brush in paint on pallet, dab again on pallet to get excess off. Now take brush and apply to nose scratches quick and gentle. If immediately after applying paint appears too thick, place brush in thinner (no paint) and dab to pallet to remove excess thinner and go over area quick and gentle to thin paint surface. Let dry.

If I have not misunderstood, the issue on the belly is born just because he used polish.

Nail polish, which is acetone.
