PostSubject: Stripping Razorwing Jetfighters   Tue Oct 10 2017, 01:00

After waiting almost half a year for Razorwing Jetfighters to restock, I broke down and bought 3 used and poorly painted ones. They arrived yesterday and I am concerned about stripping these down. My stripping experience is mostly limited to old metal infantry models and the size of these Jetfighters is what is worrying me. Am I concerned about nothing? For stripping materials on hand I have LA Totally Awesome and a few streets over a friend of mine has both Super Clean and Simple Green if needed.

I already stripped mine (bad white undercoat because of dry air, got all textured) and it went somewhat okay.

I mean the paint did go off well, but I had some problems with assembly and at some point the superglue got weakened and it openened a little bit.

Nothing to worry about though, I cleaned it, dried it and reglued it, went all fine.

I used glanzer (the green one) and it worked great.


Regarding the size, I used a bucket, put all the glanzer in, added RWJF and a weight si it stays fully under the liquid. At the end I used so coffee filters (2 at a time, change when paint clogs too much) and a funnel to refill the bottle ^^

I've used Dettol to good effect on plastic models without and loss of detail or destruction of glue Smile
