Removing printing from Tillig wagons

Removing printing from Tillig wagons

Postby Rich B » Wed Jul 10, 2013 11:23 am

Hi all,

I've got a Tillig Tadgs that I want to remove the "Getreide" lettering from, and I'll be wanting to renumber a 189 soon as well. However, I can't get to printing to shift without removing the paint below. So far I've tried thinners on a cotton bud, a burnishing pen and a curved blade. Can anyone suggest any other methods?

Cheers
Rich B

Have you tried "Goof Off", a low strength stripper?

I know DOT3 brake fluid will take paint off of models, but certain types of plastic will not handle it.

I had a brainwave after posting- I used T-cut on a cotton bud, and that did the job, leaving just a slightly glossy patch that is steadily disappearing under weathering.
