Removing Paint.

Post  Nathan.A. on Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:53 pm

Hey guys I am wanting to strip the paint off of one model and am not sure how to go about doing it.

Anyone got the answer? It's a plastic model, if that makes a difference.

Go to Canadian Tire and buy "Simple Green", works great. Soak it for a day or 2 just to be sure.

Yep, simple green for sure. Safe on plastic and everything. And you can just keep on re-using it. I've got the same tub goin now for two years. Just pour it through a coffee filter every once in a while.

If you haven't stripped mini's before it's easy. Take your wife's toothbrush and just rub it gently under running lukewarm water inthe sink. Simple green is REALLY effective. I usually go for a whole week though, and man do the mini's come out clean. Way better than using pine sol, and non toxic too.

I will say Nathan, that I soaked those Minotaurs you sold me for about a week and it barely touched them. Not sure if it's different paints/primers, etc, but I SOAKED those things and it didn't do much. I soaked 50 Bloodletters that I got from a guy and there were painted with an almost Automotive red paint and they came out super clean. Who knows what the difference was.

*edit* 1,000th post. Yeesh, I need to get painting. Embarassed
