Default Paint remover

Has anyone ever tried this brand of paint remover " Tal-Strip II aircraft coating remover" (available at most auto stores) ? I just tried on a resin model and seems to be okay, so far. just curious if anyone has tried this on plastic, or if it has other unforeseen problems. nasty stuff but works, I think.

Hans, I know what you're talking about... I've used it to strip paint and gunk from automotive frame and engine parts... A little too harsh for plastic, I think.

The end-all for model paint removal is Chameleon paint stripper. Short of that, I would use 90% acetone cautiously.

Hey Andy, can I get the Chameleon in an auto store?
Hope all is well with you.

Hans, all is well, thanks. I hope you're well also.

I don't think you can get it in an auto parts store... I'm 99% sure it's strictly a hobby-related product...

Here is what I yse. This is some sort of floor polish remover. Just pour some in a basin that can take the size of your model, completely submerge your model or parts in this liquid and in less than 10 minutes everything is completely removed, everything, decals, paint, clear coat etc. You are just left with a perfectly clean shell in less than 10 minutes, no rubbing for hours with sand paper. Plastics and metals are competely unaffected by this liquid. You could leave them in for days. But I would remove rubber wheels first, I havent tried this to see the effect.

And after all this the liquid is 100% reusable ( just changes colour a little) pour it back in the tank. Attachment 51009 Attachment 51010
