The freezer method simply involves getting the model wet, put it in a tub or bag, and place it in the freezer for a few hours. The water expansion will break parts loose.

try wgetting the parts wet than place them in the freezer for a day or two. never tryed vinagar before herd it works. I have found that luck has a lot to do with getting them apart without damage.

I saw this tip on another site . It's Model Master Acryl Dried Paint Solvent made for removing the really " Hot " paint from R/C Lexan bodies . It suppossedly wil soften dried glue in a few minutes , however it will destroy the plastic if left on too long so use it sparingly ! I found some at Tower Hobbies for less than $6 bucks but haven't recieved it yet .

I use just good old mineral spirits ... sometimes the old plastic will get a little brittle so use caution...

Thanks for the tips Guys! I may give the freezer method a shot. That sounds like a fairly safe route. We'll see.
