Sorry to hear about the bubbling, Harry.
At least the base is a nice flat surface and no detail will be lost in removing the old paint and starting again.
Am sure, you'll have it sorted soon.
I would like to get this on finished also. Did you start on your kit?
I have spent a lot of time on the base and trying to get a high gloss chrome finish. Now that I have the Mr. Color GX2 this should be possible. Needs to be done for IPMS in March along with the Slave I, as I can not take the Y-Wing again because of the best of show award.
Thank you for the links, I will read them this evening.
