Two questions, again.
1) Anyone know a good way to 'de-glue' a model? I bought a used XV8 battlesuit that someone had traded in and the guy glued on a -crappy- configuration of systems and weapons. I plan on magnetizing all my battlesuits. That being said, I need to find a way to disassemble this guy's gear, preferably reassembling the entire model. Anyone know a good way to kill off glue without melting the model to scrap or some such?
2) I'm doing a comissioned paintjob on a mate's Space Marine Landspeeder. The paint job is going great, but I thought it would be really neat to add in some battle damage. Anyone have any tips for that? I've cut a few 'chunks' out of some of the armor and added in some scratches, but I need tips on making those look truly reaslistc, as well as painting them the right colors to make them appear correct.
Kardea, the Tau guy with lots of questions.
Superglue is generally fairly weak under sharp high stress, IE you should be able to snap it off without too much damage being done. If it's plastic glue however your best bet is a modeling knife, and just cutting it off.
If you don't mind if the paint is ruined, I've found that easy off weakens superglue bonds fairly well. It also destryes pain and greestuff work however.
