Yes, if you're going to use PE in locations whare there's molded-on detail, remove it. Some builders find it necessary (me for one) to drill tiny locating holes in the body for reference before totally obliterating the molded details. You have to be careful to make sure your holes are located correctly and small enough to be covered by the PE, especailly wnen doing script.

i continue to be amazed how the PE manufacturers expect modelers to envision how their parts go together. some come with sketchy instructions, and some of the military stuff i've used does have good information, but i really think they're doing themselves a dis-service by not including complete "how - to" instructions.
what's the worst that could happen; they sell more products?

Joe, I totally agree. I find my self scratching my head at times wondering what to do next. Thank goodness for forums, many of us would be lost without this resource. Scott
Absolutely. I would be totally lost on how to assemble MFH PE wire wheels without Andy Smith's tutorial, (which is hard to find based on a very weak search function on this forum). It would also be good to see PE tutorials on things like windshield wipers and piano hinges. Maybe we need a pinned PE section.
