I was wondering, what is the quickest or cheapest way to remove super-glue. I'm not sure what kind it is, but I think it may be a Games Workshop brand glue. It leaves a white-ish outline on the parts glued, and if left for a while the fumes (or so it seems) creates a white-ish texture on the surrounding areas (ex. inside of a tank is tinted white)
Can anyone help ?
What I do is just paint over it. Is this what you mean? Because, I don't know any other way.
Sorry for not being clear before -- I was in a hurry. What I mean is that the model is poorly constructed and I want to re-do it, the white stuff I was talking about was just to describe the glue I used.
I just use amodeling knife to take off the worst bits.
You haven't tried with petrol/gasoline or something else like that?
I don't think you should try petrol on a plastic model

I use realy hot water
it works for me might work for you
Hmmm yea you say something there...
Gotta remember that...
not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plnot petrol on plastic, astic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic, not petrol on plastic... now I remember it...
lol, what happens when you put petrol on plastic ?
Camus, I'll try the hot water method...
Plastic is derived from petrol (its a petrochemical product), so it will dissolve it, since petrol is a very strong solvent (its used for cleaning in some industries did you know...)
Superglue can be removed from humans or almost anything else with acetone (nail polish remover), and this is the chemical remover that you can get with some glues (in the extra little bottle called debonder). Occasionally neat alcohol will also work, but it depends on the make-up of the specific superglue itself.
Ok I think I'm going to use acetone instead of hot water, since I read in another thread that hot water makes plastic more pliable - and I don't want to mess up my tank's structure. So do I brush or soak with the acetone ?
