space marines and simple green

Post  Despoiler on Sun Feb 05, 2012 5:44 am

So I've had a few people tell me simple green strips paint off pretty decent, so my query is this: dilute or no? Paint thinner messes up models, and I've had almost no success with it.. and I have quite a few models to repaint. How do you guys deal with this stuff? Use it straight out the bottle? Or does that screw with the plastic pieces? And how long do they need to swim for? Does it eat at the glue too? confused Ergg..

I had a rhino soak in simple green for about four months (kind of forgot it was in there) and it came out fine. I use a stiff dishes brush to scrub the paint off and a tooth brush to get into smaller areas. It does a great job and doesn't affect the glue. Just rinse it under warm water thoroughly to wash all the simple green off.

4 months?! Holy crap! I was thinkin at best a week, man, I dunno about 4 months. that would test what little patience I have left.. but on the flip side maybe not diluting it will speed things along?

no he was saying it wont hurt the model if you leave it in to long usually just 24-48 hours undiluted in a tub will do the trick.

Also it depends on what paint, primer, and purity seal was used.

I used Simple Green for 24 hours on a group of my dark eldar doods, a bowl of hot water and an electric toothbrush later they were looking brand new. I definitely recommend the electric, much faster. It took off the base coat too like a champ.

Cleaned about 80 marines and 20 terminators and a dread with the stuff. I let them set for 24+ hours and afterwards the paint just rubbed off and they look pretty spiffy now. I'd definitely recommend it now that I've tried it
