Diecast Restorations Undertaken.
The Diecast Models I restore and the Code 3’s I
build all undergo a complete process before they
are returned to their owners or listed on EBay. They
are stripped back to bare metal using Caustic Soda
or Paint Stripper before one or more coats of primer
and then sanding is done.
Primer is then re-sprayed and lightly sanded before
the finish coats are applied. As many as five coats
go on my models to get the required results.
Any detailing is then done and a light coat of clear is
placed on top. Next are the decals (if applicable) and
then another light coat of clear. Drying time varies
and so does the method of drying (Sunlight,
spotlights or ovens). This is then coated with a final
thicker layer of clear to seal the models finish and
produce a deep glossy shine.
Some models will have been painted in matt finish
as this was the original finish on that particular
model. I always try to use authentic replacement
parts like new tires, decals and small fitted objects.
Most of the models I restore are in very play worn
condition and really need to be restored. I also
partially restore some vehicles (like trucks and
Vans) when parts are still in good condition but
some are badly worn.
All models receive many hours of work before I am
satisfied with the result and will place it up for
auction or return to the owner so be patient when
having a restoration project done.
I hope you like the work I do as I put a lot into the
diecast I restore or rebuild.
