Soaking Tiger

I put Roco into Simple Green to soak off the paint.

My record is fourteen layers that I could identify on one vehicle.

There is often a lime colored or gold colored layer.

This JagdTiger had at least five layers.

It looked like it had been painted with a roller.  The paint was really thick.

14 layers! Wow - it must have been more paint than model! As to the layers of gold on old models and figures, it amazes me how often I find it on stuff I am stripping. It would seem that gold is a popular choice of colour for some painters - regardless of subject!

What about the glue, does it not melt?

Uncle Brian, I have been told some people use gold as a primer because it is cheap and covers well. Who knew?

shintokamikaze, the glue will usually hold up okay, unless it's white glue.
