1/100 Westway Models refinish from old Lufthansa t

So I got this model off eBay a month or 2 ago, and it was in bad shape as you can see. So after I was done with the DC10 that I was working on, I got stuck into this one. I used Citristrip this time rather than Easyoff or Simple Green or any other paint remover. I let the Citristrip do its work, although it’s messy. I then sanded down the rough bits and the smoothed our the surface with a smoothing cloth. After painting, it came out pretty well. Looks good in the SR bandit colors.

Fabulous work and likewise would love to know whose decals you used. Also never heard of citristrip, thanks for that.

Fantastic job! A ton of work in fumes over a tub, fine sand and paint and I imagine weeks to do it. Then to find a clean room to apply the decals with steady hands and a great eye. I have a great respect for those of you who can do this.

I had never seen a Swiss Air B747 in person and never noticed the "eyeliner" effect with the black glare shield on the nose until I viewed your model. Very interesting.

The decals were Two-six that we’re resized for 1/100 scale

It’s one of the reasons I love Two-Six. They’re well measured, durable, and overlap well. I’m a stickler for the perfect look and fit. If it looks bad, it will eat at me with disappointment to where I almost never want to see the model again. But this one I really like.
