  6. Tim H added a post in a topic Paint Strippers - What to Use?   

    While I have not had any sucess using brake fluid. I have had good luck with both Easy Off( standard stuff) and Pine Sol. While the easy Off has the nasty smell. Pine Sol has the pine smell which is better, IMO.

    Well I am fromerly of MI. was a member of the Southeast Michigan Modelers ( 93-95) don't know of they are still around. grew up in Redford graduated Redford Union in 83, Walled Lake, and Detroit (moved in 1970) Returned from 9 years in the service in 92. couldn't stand all the people and build up. left in 95 never looked back. ONLY thing I miss is the almost daily car shows in the summer, and the model clubs and events.

  11. Tim H added a post in a topic A paint question   

    While all of us have had orange peal. I have found that you need to put the paint on heavy enough that it flattens out but light enough that is doesn't run. It is a fine line I learned. it took me a while to learn it. I was always going to light. I usually warm my cans up under hot tap water. I will run the can then shake it, repeating till the can remains warm when shaken. it ups the pressure and causes the paint to flow better.
