Hi again folks
Well as some of you will know, I sought advice on how to strip my Lord of
The Isles loco as it had too much paint on it and this had caused the
details to be negatively affected.
Soap and water and a shoe brush
paint stripper from the local Mitre 10 - I can report varying results with
the first 4 items and disastrous results on the last one - not only did it
struggle to lift the undercoat (etch primer to be precise) it attacked the
plastic, so now I have an even more mammoth task ahead of me - that of
sanding the body to remove all the bloody wrinkles created by the solvent.
Anyone have a spare Lord of The Isles body they are willing to part with,
coz this one is buggered!
Oh well - back to my self-flagellation post
