Quote from: Winchweight on September 03, 2007, 18:04:34 pmWhen restoring old models i used a product called Model Strip. You paint on the paste, leave overnight in a plastic bag, and wash of the next day, agitating with a stiff brush. Depends on the paint though, very effective with enamels etc.

Quote from: bigron2 on September 03, 2007, 21:07:43 pmI remember hand launching one once with a ST .51 up front. It struggled to get away from a launch without a heavy shove and then it headed for the ground first, hopefully it would pick up enough speed to climb away...
Quote from: JimG on September 03, 2007, 21:31:36 pmI have successfully used a stripper called Home Strip, it is water based and therefore unlikely to attack plastics. It was bought in B&Q, if not still available then a similar product should be on sale.
