One of the many helpers I’ve come to appreciate in recent months is Gunze Sangyo’s Mr. Paint Remover. The clear liquid comes in a 40ml glass bottle with red cap and no brush inside.
The test subject here is the gun barrel of a Dragon Panther G. It has been painted with Alclad Stainless Steel, then covered in a layer of Revell 37 to simulate the typical German tank red-brown primer. While painting the tank I didn’t mask the barrel off, so it also received the yellow coat you see on the rest of the turret – a mix of Revell 12 (gloss) and 15 (matt).
