Liquid ammonia should depolymerize most acrylic resins.

As Serge said, ammonia should work fine. If it's not acrylic you'll need to employ methanol, turpentine, laquer thinner, or acetone ( in that order. ) If that doesn't work, send it back to Testors for replacement.
Throw it away and hell you'll pay, better hang on to it-be worth money some day!

Keeper,
Throw something away??? Who does that??? I'm even hard pressed to "throw" away damaged files on my computer. . .

Well, the Pima Air & Space tour. After the Nats I went to Taliesen West, although hot it was edifying. Frank Loyd Wright was quite the visionary but could of wound up a carney huckster. I tried to go to the zoo but it was too hot for long walks outside; my Northcoast body doesn't like anything over 65. I spent the last few days carousing and gallavanting. Great fun but I'm glad to be back among my crap! Cheers,
