Hi Equan,

I wouldn't have chosen bleach as my stripper. unfortunately bleach and aluminium are not good together, as you have discovered. I use a product available here in the UK called Fairy Power Spray, it is non caustic and strips acrylic paints brilliantly. It will also strip enamels, but more effort is required. It is basically a very powerful detergent, I am sure that you will be able to find a comparable product and if you can, give it a try. So sorry that all that hard work has been ruined, I hope you can salvage something from it.

All the best,

Paul

to see what the chemicals did to your Panzer IV.

The Flakpanzer still looks great however, but I am left to wonder how the driver would fit into this vehicle with the hatch closed.

Cheers
Rob

A very clear and crisp build, I will save Your pics as reference for a later project.
Keep posting updates!

P.S. the PIV J looks a little bit like a tank laying in water since years, a liitle bit like a synthetic reef...

Hi, Rob
Long time no see.
I wasn't recognize about driver's hatch.
But, I consulted with various information. especially Micheal Rinaldi's work
and articles of the Panzerwreck.
almost accurate.
anyway.. I guess that hatch was left opening in drive.
Anybody know about this?

Hi, Christian.

That is my Pleasure.
Thanks!

and.. I agree your opinion about J.
My co-modeller said like you.
It seems like a tank laying in sea for longtime.
