  • Paint Stripper

    I'm planning on stripping a paint scheme from one of my tanks. I used to have a product that was sort of caustic to my hands but didn't harm a plastic Heng Long tank. I thought it was "Gunk" but I can't be sure. Any recommendations out there?

    Martin Kovac from night shift used a product to redo his panzer II. I don't remember the name, but check out his youtube channel.

      He used Clean Slate RMVR. Available in Europe, drat.

          Actually some of each. (I’ve found Clean Slate in-country.)

            Soaked my 30 year old Warhammer 40K minis in this: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Super-Cle...p&athbdg=L1103

            Let them sit in solution for over 24 hours and no deformation of the plastic. It removed both acrylic and enamel paint from them. You still want to wear gloves when using this stuff, but it's not as caustic as most stuff and it is bio-degradable.
