Fantastic! I think my Divex dial needs some of that magic treatment!

Looks great as always Guy. Do you use enamel model paint for restoring the dials? That's one thing I have yet to try. It's probably been 30 years since I picked up an airbrush, but I use to be quite good at it and recently picked up a new airbrush to play with.

No paint used on this one. But I tend to like Vallejo paints, and more importantly, the right thinner and consistency. Cheers again for the comments!

You'll do fine Jerry, let me know if you have any questions, but I'm no expert and maybe what I do wouldn't work for you and vice versa.

Acrylic? or do they have an enamel line?

I was just curious. I've been using a similar acrylic by Apple Barrel rated for outdoors so I'm hoping it's a little more resilient than normal acrylics. It seems I'm the right direction then, thanks.

You will want to look at varnishes aswell to secure any paint work.

Wow! Incredible work, GuyJ! Seeing the before photo, specially the hands, I would have thought it was hopeless case.

that before picture was genuinely scary. i wouldn't have guessed
it could be brought back from that....if we were functioning within
the art museum world of restoration, you would be working in the
museum of your choice. anyone who doesn't get this is seeing
with their ears....
