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

I completely forgot to post a thank you to everyone that replied. I finished stripping all 3 and one is almost unusable. It looked like the person that modeled it cut parts of the sprue incorrectly and man does it look terrible. Going to patch with green stuff as much as possible and hopefully one month GW will have these restocked for the US so we can actually buy them again.
