Revenge by DSiemens


Recommended Posts


So a friend at my local club brought in a few of these. I guess his dad used to own a modeling store and he has a lot of old inventory.

I think this one was made for war gaming but I'm going to paint up the hull replace the masts and sails with wood and paper. The rig her up and bottle her. Any suggestions for paint on die cast models?

Give the pieces  a good wash with detergent and dry them without touching them with bare hands before undercoating. Use acrylic paints; get a small set of artists acrylics in tubes (much cheaper than buying pots of modeling paints), and mix your own colours (stacks of 'how to's on the net) using acrylic thinners (one bottle lasts a long time) - a number of thin coats beats one thick any time. Wash brushes out in water. Sails can be tinted using artists water colours.
