Greenstuff vs. Nail polish remover
i want to know this because i need to remove some of the paint on a model but it has a GSed arm. Will the nail polish remover destroy my sculpting?

i usually use simple green to remove paint on plastics, never tried nail polish.
gl w that. let us know how it works.
you could always test it out yourself on a test glob
Nail polish remover will melt the plastic if you leave it on for too long. I tried it a while ago and by the time it started to remove the paint the plastic started melting. In the UK I use Fairy Power spray. Fount you can leave the figures soaking in it over night with no damage to the figure.
He said Greenstuff, not plastic. I'd like to know the answer, too, honestly.
So 1337 that it'll crash your physics engine.
Nail polish remover contains most of the time pure acetone. Acetone is one of a few widely used solvents, meaning stuff brakes down and dissolves into a solvent. Acetone is on of the more faster solvents and is used in paint thinner, nail polish remover, and glue removers. So if you stick plastic into acetone it will eventually turn into a taffy gooey poisonous mess (depending on plastic to acetone ratio).
But if you have a metal model acetone is quite useful and wont harm the metal parts (but may dissolves any glue you used to put it together).

In the rule book, on page 5, it says:
"The most important rule about playing games of Warhammer 40K is to have fun!"
I have tried brake fluids with models with and without GS and never had a problem...
Since the time 3 marines of mine went Nurglish with the nail polisher due to acetone factor I went away of this solvent! The straight answer to your question is I don't really know but I don't think anything bad will happen as long as you won't leave him inside for a long period! If I were you though I would go for the brake fluids (always with gloves!) :w00t:
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
According to my manicurist you can easily find non-acetone nail polish remover which works almost as well.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
