Stripping the paint from your minis

17 posts in this topic

I just got finished stripping the paint from an A-Wing in preparation of doing a repaint. Since I hadn't seen anybody else talk about the best way to approach this I did a video of my (successful) experiment.

Dude, thank you. 

I've come so close several times to attempting to strip down one of my SWXM, but having two little kids I hate wasting what little free time I have on projects that don't pan out. 

You rule, man!

I'm pretty happy with the paint on the models overall. Still, when I first heard of the A-Wings coming out the blue scheme from McQuarrie's painting came to mind and I knew that I was going to have to do at least one repaint. Now that I've done it I'm tempted to do more.

Really, really nice. Especially the light weathering and the engines. Really good stuff!

Torn between getting my X-WIng Minis blog up and running and doing some repaints!

I'm a huge fan of Ralph McQuarrie, so any work based on his designs is bound to catch my attention. But your model painting is just outstanding. Do you do commissions?
