      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Hi,

    I had a similar situation when I had sprayed my windows with tamiya ps-31 smoke and I didn't obtained the effect that I was looking for. So I had to remove the paint but I couldn't do it. So I decided to remove it with some easy-off and brake fluid. But the damage was already done.

    So, I tried to buff the part to get back the shine and transparancy. Indeed, it was a long process. From 3200 grit up to 12000 grit. I also had some tamiya polishing compound.

    Here are the pics during the whole process:

    The stuff used

    Then some polishing done





    At the end




    Hope this will help
