This is my first time stripping and repainting a diecast. I’m pretty happy with the results. I like everything about this casting, including the lovely shade of blue/grey it was, except it had hideous giant tampos that would not come off. I chose red because ... Well, because I had it already. Now all it needs is a bit of detailing.

I thought it looked rather pretty in raw form, but I decided to paint it, because I wanted practice before going full gonzo on my K-10 longbed custom. Time to put up or shut up on that one!
