Hey,
can anyone tell me the best way to remove paint from resin without any damage to the resin? I got a badly painted Predator Axetor and want to remove all the paint from it. Any help would be apprecitated.





cheers

never tried paint removal, i'd be more tempted just to give it a couple coats of good undercoat to cover it up. you're gonna have to undercoat it anyways, so why not....

Oh, man. Good tip! I tried Deep Down Stain Stripper once, and it deformed the resin a bit, I lost a bit of the detail in the cast. Awful, awful, awful experience.

I've had good results with Easy-Off oven cleaner. Doesn't deform the resin and works a treat.

Spray the kit inside a plastic bag, leave the plastic bag in the sun for an hour or longer for better results and then scrub the kit gently with an old toothbrush in hot soapy water. The paint just falls off.

Repeat for any stubborn paint left on the kit. Make sure you wear gloves.
