    hey i was wondering, i have the firts model i painted, which is a necron wraith, and so it doesn't look very good. now i have two more in box and want to have a full squad of those nifty ghosties. can anyone tell me how to get the original wraith back to just the metal and no paint? oh and if anyone knows i also could use a way to get the spine off of my necron lord, like without hurting it, either neatly tear it off or find some way to dissolve the glue. help and comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Brake fluid works well, as does nail polish remover for metals (Don't use nail polish remover on plastics...)

    Hello,
    I always use Easy-Off Oven cleaner. It works excellently on metal and it works well on plastic. You can find it at Wal-mart. Put ur model(s) in a zip-loc bag and spray the oven cleaner in it. (Be sure not to get the stuff on ur skin or breathe it in) Once u have done that, just leave it for about 24 hours. Then get a wire brush or old tooth brush and brush the whole model. Hope this helps

    I use "Simple Green", a concentrated car cleaner that you can also pick up at Wal-mart! You can get a big bottle of it for about 4 or $5. It works safely on both metal and plastics, it can over time take off some of the glue on models if it can get into the joints and stuff. Just soak for a couple of hours (or overnight to be safe) then scrub with a toothbrush or whatever else.

    i used pine-sol on my commisar and that worked. i had to use a tooth brush to scrub away the remnants, but the pine-sol did break the paint considerably well. plus, it smells fresh!
