Default Removal of dried glue on a plane

Unfortunately, a recent purchase of mine arrived with what looks like dried crazy glue on the plane. Does anyone know how to remove glue without damaging the paint on the model?

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Mo

Sorry, but if it really is crazy glue, there is NO WAY to remove the glue without removing some paint also. The debonding agent in crazy glue remover will also attack the paint. The best of a bad situation would be to sand the glue down and repaint.

But if it were me, I would return the model unless you can live with the glue spot.

Thanks for the info, that's a shame I can't get it off without damaging the paint. I bought it from a guy in another country so shipping it back is a bit of a hassle. I guess I can live with the glue spot. I don't trust my ability to sand down and repaint.

What i did with my Boeing colors 787-9, was sand with a nail polisher. I used a nail polishing block, which has 4 sides from roughest to lightest. The file is so fine is allows for a high gloss polished sheen evening out the paint and glue surfaces.

I did use first a sharp blade to reduce the glue's thickness. Note however that if you are to go with this, the filing block's roughest side may still be too abrasive. So i would start with the finest side first.
