My plans to test the AK chipping fluid didn't go completely to plan. Despite soaking the painted surfaces with the liquid, I didn't seem to be able to scratch through the paint to any great effect.
More effective was using a fibreglass pencil. I could wear through the top coat and expose the painted rust, but I think that would work without the clever fluids. I guess that this proves not all products give instant results. There is a learning curve and you don't get to leap straight to the top.
More experimentation methinks.
Anyway, I dry-brushed and washed the model anyway and am happy with the results. It's got a reasonable work-worn look. Now all I need to do is work out what to do with it next.
