    Old edition Whirlwind

    Today a friend of mine gave me as a "present" an old edition Whirlwind... Actually it wasn't a present. He had it on a shelf collecting dust... literally... Now the painting on it was supposed to be for Dark Angels and it is on it for ages... :cry:



    Here is a picture of the Whirlwind... and yes the white on it is dust...

    Now I wanted to ask... What can I do with it? I want to strip the paint of it and make some changes but I am worried on the dust part. Can I give it a wash, with water, before doing anything? Then I know to strip the paint off using Break Fluid...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong side of the Forum and feel free to share your ideas with me or move this post to the right location!

    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...

    Get a can of compressed air or a feather duster and get as much of the dust off as you can. Then just shove it in the brake fluid. Some parts may fall off but you can always just stick those back on.

    I know about the brake fluid and I don't mind anything falling off... besides I will have my share of fun with some things on it! But the feather never came to my mind...

    Compressed air can...

    Can't You just flush it under water to get rid of the dust? The kit is made out of plastic and metal, witch won't get hurt by some water, unless it is to warm then...

    Yup... that was my first option and thought! But then I said to myself maybe someone else had the same problem or some option better than I thought I had...

    And by now I must say that the tips given are very nice indeed...!

    I think the guy who invented compressed air was facing a problem like this.
    But if you are going to go breakfluid on it, I'm not sure it's really needed. I can't see the paint come off leaving only the dust where it used to be... a somewhat strange scenario.
