@18bravo I didn’t have much successes with it, that is right. It always did leave something behind that made the finish not that perfect or satisfying. I haven’t tried to put putty over the existing putty to remove it, if that is what you were suggesting. But my guess is that it just is sticking and got stuck there. I guess I can just spray it over with the color I’m wanting to airbrush my model. Fortunately, I did only one side using this technique. So the ‘damage’ is restricted to only one side of the model. The rest is intact.
As I’m doing more and more myself and ‘trying’ new stuff I’m also getting more experience. Including the unpleasant ‘failing’ experiences such as this one. And I don’t usually know what to do in such situations. Because there is nothing else really besides this place to fall back on. Everything of my scale modeling hobby is via internet and/or phone. No real contacts, because there is nothing close enough to the place where I live. Sad but true.
@Robin_Nilsson I honestly don’t know. Before I did this. I had decided to place an order at the store I’m regular customer for my model making stuff. modelbouwkrikke.nl. And I asked in advance if I could use the camouflage putty to mask of my model before painting it. And I remember they said something like, yes you could do that in principal. So I thought it would be possible without problems. I was wrong. I hope that I still can get a decent result with my model, since I have already put in a lot of work. And I’m thinking of looking to more variety of shops to purchase items as I’m gettng more personal experiences. And I’m experiencing that one shop isn’t always the best to satisfy the needs and wishes I have.
@claude I don’t have good experiences with asking to manufacturers directly. Long time ago I did ask questions to Revell directly. And they didn’t seem to be happy to receive questions of me. And they wanted me to contact a shop or something. ICM is different, they are helpful and they respond to e-mails asking questions directly. But they are probably the exception on this rule. So I probably don’t ask directly.
I don’t have time to solve the problem in the coming days. I really have a struggle with finding time and planning everything. There seems always to be something that disrupts my planning. And I just have to see when I’m able to spend some time solving the problem.
Thanks for all your replies and have a nice week.
