Default 1/400 Big Bird...Does anyone know..?

Does anyone know if the white paint on Bird Bird 1/400 747's is baked on? I'd like to remove the tampo on this 747 but if the white base in not baked on it will come off too even when using non-acetone finger nail polish remover.

I know for a fact that Inflight 200 C-9s are not and the base coat white will come off in this scenario.

Any help appreciated.

Can't speak for this particular model, but the (early) BB400s I've stripped had it baked. Always depends on the livery of course, but on this one I'd expect it.

I've certainly purchased the odd BA world tail custom (by Hugo) over the years, all of which used BB originals. He'd strip the tail art and reg, to create another utopia example.
Let's be having, the British Airways/British, Negus & Negus BAC 1-11-500 in 1:400 please !
