Stripping



No my blog hasn't taken a very strange turn. Like many of the people in the world, I am poor, so in a recent clear out of my hobby boxes I've found many models that either I started and left due to being a hobby magpie in my youth, or ruined as I used to be an awful painter.

One such model is Hector Rex



He's a model I fell in love with bought and proceeded to cover in far too much paint. This led to a shopping trip this morning to buy



Yes this seemingly innocuous stuff is the key to stripping, a friend of mine (there's a link to his blog "CALIBAN'S LAMENT" in the left side bar, please take a look) has recently had some success in stripping models with this stuff.

So I'm jumping on that smelly band wagon in the hope of saving some models and selling them for some mush needed cash. :P



Not a great post so todays secretary is similarly ok, Charisma Carpenter.

  1. Glad I could help! =) Just remember - Dilute it 1:1 with water, and leave the models to soak for 2-3 days dependant upon thickness of paint.

    And DO NOT rinse in cold water, the model goes all gummy and nasty. Rinse the toothbrush in neat Dettol until the model is clean (or as clean as you can be bothered to make it) then plunge it into a bowl of warm/hot water with plenty of washing up liquid.
