I am currently working on a 49 Mercury and it has been coming along excellent until know. I started putting the paint job on it and it immediately started looking like ######!! ;) I can't stand it when a project turns bad! Makes me want to quit all-together! :o

It happens to everyone!

Strip the paint and try again... not much else you can do. Even the most experienced, talented modelers screw up. (they just don't admit it!!!) ;)

Yeah, I guess its time to get out the brake fluid. Hopefully it won't hurt the plastic too much.

Therer are plenty of other ways to strip paint, if you're unsure of brake fluid.

CSC or Easy-Off oven cleaner... just to name a couple.

In fact, if you had the August/September issue of MCM, you'd have seen the article comparing different types of paint strippers.

Yet another benefit of subscribing to the magazine... ;)
