I sat down at my little workspace planning to do some work on the model I was planning on entering in GD. I looked at the lil guy's leg and saw that there were some weird highlights on his black armour. I then realised that It was actually the bare plastic I was offit as anyone would be (sorry bout the byron bay slang).
I'm trying to find a way to save him. Should I look for some simple green and see if that works* or should I try to keep painting him and paint over the plastic running the risk of more chipping?
Please in the name of all that is holy! Help meeeee!
*Does anyone know if you can get simple green at woolies or mitre 10 (in oz)
I live in Sydney and got some Simple Green from Bunnings. It was about 25 bucks for a big tub of this hand wash stuff, i filled up a small container with it and put my models in it for 24 hours and then with a tooth brush i brushed away most of the paint and left with its undercoat and some of its basecoat. Simple Green helped me salvage my ruined plastic model!
Im not sure what Easy Green is though, probably something similar.

If you get a brush-on paint stripper, you might be able to just strip and redo the leg instead of needing to start from scratch. Or try painting over the area with a brush-on primer and start back with that as a fresh base without even stripping the leg.
If it's the only spot giving you trouble like that, just save touching it back up for last and do it careful before you seal it. Not much to worry about after that.
