Stripping Paint!
« on: May 09, 2017, 03:05:51 AM »
So I messed up the paint on my current build today. How do you guys go about stripping the paint off the parts.  I'm using mr. Color gundamcolor paints with a top coat of alclad2 gloss and alclad2 grey primer. Thanks for the help

Not sure about lacquers, I Mainly use acrylics and some enamels. But I dump my parts in a solution of Simple Green (I hear good things about Purple power as well) and water in an ultrasonic cleaner. works well for me and it wont hurt polystyrene. I left parts for an HG GM sniper II in it for over a month by accident and they cam out fine. After soaking them for a few hours-days I scrub them with a toothbrush.

Mr color thinner. Scrub, don't soak.

Bleach will work, but it'll take a bit of scrubbing. I have read previously that alcohol works fine too although I am yet to try this myself.

I use Brake Fluid Dot 3 for stripping Lacquer paints, and usually works wonders.
