Topics I've Started

stripping (Tamiya Fine Surface) primer off a model?

22 May 2014 - 07:45 AM



I had used Super Clean to remove acrylic paint(Tamiya acrylic, Testors Acryl) with success.  I only soaked the model for about an hour or so and it removed all the acrylic paint but left the Tamiya(Fine Surface) primer on the model.  This was done a couple of months ago.  I just noticed that the primer is kind of soft.  


Did the initial soak in the Super Clean soften the primer? 


If I soak the model overnight, will the Super Clean also remove the Tamiya primer?  


Tamiya primer is lacquer but I thought Super Clean also removed lacquer and primer.


Should I dilute the Super Clean with water or use it straight?


BTW, will ScaleCoat II Wash Away paint remover work on removing the primer?  I've heard good things about it.  


However there's putty on the model I don't want removed.  I think I read that Scale Coat II Wash Away will remove putty.

C3 Corvettes' undercarriage(chassis) factory color?

Does anyone know what color the C3 Corvettes' undercarriage(chassis) was painted at the factory?  

More specifically the late 70's - early 80's C3's.


Was it in primer with over spray from the body or black?  If primer then what shade?  I think GM used a dark gray primer but I'm not too sure.
