Bob,



When using brake fluid I just brush it on, and have had no problem with warping. What was your technique?

Heck, I even soaked cars in brake fluid for an hour or longer without any ill effects.�� I wonder what happened to those cars, they almost look like they were heated.�� Maybe they are not regular styrene?Regards, Vic BitlerisRaleigh, NC

Vic,



It has to do with the kind of plastic.



Back in the early 1970s I used cheap brake fluid to remove paint from

Athearn shells all the time.



Then Atlas began making HO products and brought in a F unit.



I dropped the Atlas shell in my brake fluid and the next morning it was

misshappened and very soft. Ruined of course.



But, cheap brake fluid works great for most things.

I agree. I tried to strip two Atlas (I think) C424 shells and each time,

the cab split and or warped.



Cheers.

Ditto with Trix and Arnold-Rapido. Drop the shell in and next day you have a

plastic pretzel. Not sure what it does in the short term, but anything that

can melt plastic in a day probably isn't so hot for short term use either.

Sadly, plastic is not plastic and you never know until trying, realizing you

may end up crying :(

Ultrasonic in it's plastic case for several hours.

Well, actually It's a plastic storage case rubber banded to an old aquarium pump.

Now I use 91% isopropyl alcohol with sonic agitation or oven cleaner also in plastic case not agitated but not allowed to dry.

P.S. Don't use an aquarium pump connected to an aquarium, the alcohol leaks and the pump sucked it up and murdered Herby.

Bob



As I mentioned previously, I brush brake fluid on to remove a paint finish. I don't soak the model, because I wasn't sure of the effect, and equally because the wagon wasn't mine. The brushing method may require repeated coats over a few days (24 hours between coats kind of thing), but I have not had the plastic deformed in any way, (so far).

Hi ��I have used a an ethanol product to strip the paint from Katocovered hoppers without any problem. The product also contains metyletylketone,acetone and etylacetate, but it is 95 % ethanol. I live in Sweden and this productis sold to be used for cleaning and as a solvent. The additives are added togive the product a very unpleasant taste (undrinkable). ��I let them soak for 15 minutes and then brushed them with an oldtooth brush. The paint came off without any problems. �� ��Roland LevinStockholm, Swedenhem.bredband.net/drgw �� �� ��Fr.n:weathering@yahoogroups.com [mailto:weathering@yahoogroups.com] F.r DavidBott
