Last night I dug through the spares box and pulled out some Revell B-17 parts that are probably 40 years old. One of the first model kits I ever built was the Memphis Belle. It's long since gone, but some of the propellers remained. They will be used to repair some of my old and damaged B-17s. Once I finished with this Lost World visitor, I did some B-17 work.
It seemed like The War That Time Forgot on my patio today, lizards had taken over my outdoor workspace.
The yellowed and tattered decals had to go, so a little Easy-Off oven cleaner on the wing as a test job.
I line a cardboard box with wax paper and spray oven cleaner on it to take off the decals.
I did the set up in my kitchen but the actual spraying happens outside in the fresh air. Thanks to Expert Modeller Tom Seeling for providing the old B-17 kits. He was disposing of some surplus assembled models years ago, and I am just now getting around to working on them.
