Im looking for something to strip the paint off my models effectively
that I can buy in most stores that sell that kind of thing.
Preferably something I can buy in England and that is
Thanks for any help
It's toxic though, but it doesn't melt the plastic.
Hm. I also have this problem.
I was planning to try removing paint with white or methylated spirits, but none of my friends know what will happen to the plastic..
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
I've had really good luck with finger nail polish remover. Ask your mom, sis, wife. Every woman has plenty of this laying around.
I tried white spirit.
I forgot about the models though, and left it in there
for about 3days and when i took them out
they were abit soft and broke easily. I didnt try to scrub the paint off though.
It didnt seem like it had done anything to the paint on my metal
model i left in there.
Yeah I heard brake fluid is good.
Anyone know how much it is in England?
When you say finger nail polish remover... you don't mean acetone do you?
I' ve tried that... it had catastophic outcome...
check out my blog: DRAGONSLAYERO
I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
Yes its got acetone in it.
I used some yesterday, I left a model in there for 10 minutes
and the layer of paint I painted on with a brush peeled off
like skin : >
But the Citadel White undercoat is having a hard time coming off,
Id have to scrub it really hard.
The nail polish remover hasnt done anything to the model itself.
Yes nail polish remover does have acetone but it is very diluted. It has to be or your (Insert female of choice here) would get chemical burns on her fingertips.
I've never had a problem with it yet.
Anyone know why the nail polish remover isnt getting of my white citadel undercoat?
The models have been painted for about 6 years.
You guys are all wrong you should use windex. It even gets paint off metal models.
