    Thanks for the replies, guys!  Been a hectic week, so I haven't had a chance to try anything.  I will try the 91% soak first, since I have that on hand.

    Removing pre-decorated graphics
    There is a hobby shop in town that is closing its doors, sadly...the owners are retiring...so I picked up one of these.  For $4, why not.
    Does anyone know the best method to remove the pre-printed graphics?  I could just prime and paint over, but I'm afraid the graphics will just sort of show as a raised area underneath the paint.
    Ideas and thoughts would be much appreciated!

    I stopped by my local Michael's yesterday.  They had a handful of kits that were on clearance, but the clearance price was $11.99-12.99, so I passed.

    The KMET and KLOS decals on the rear just seal the deal for me...that's gorgeous!

    I just picked this kit up at Hobby Lobby, and the box reads 1/24 scale.
