Walt, you shouldn't even have to ask. It is our duty as older modelers to help those along who need such help and advice. Without passing down wisdom, the hobby will be less friendly and a lot less worthwhile.



Guess I'll say YES!

Here is the glass I am going to clean up it's out of the AMT 65 Galaxie
Posted Image
Here is most of all that I will be using to do this and maybe I will learn something through this and maybe some of you will to, so if you want to help or ask questions feel free to pipe in .

All different grits
Posted Image
what I am going to try here is show that it can be done with what we would have around and not be afraid of trying it and I will be using tooth paste to polish it out giggle
This is where i am at starting with a coarser grit and working down to wet sanding it.

Just enough future to dip it in
Posted Image
When you pull it out lay it on newspaper or paper towel so that it wicks off the extra future let it dry a couple minuites then place it on a clean spot so it doesn't stick to the paper
Posted Image
Posted Image
And there we have it clear glass again and for my first time I am pretty inpressed myself and it's nothing to be intimidated with.
And as always any question on how I did something just ask.
cheers

Looks great, Walt. Thanks for the tutorial. Question though - after sanding, could Novus #1 or #2 be used instead of toothpaste?
