Smart. That's a new one on me. I take it we are talking Dettol cleaners. I automatically think of antiseptic lol.

Dettol antiseptic does a great job of removing paint without damaging the plastic Ian. I found it much more effective than Mr Muscle oven cleaner.

Well i've finally managed to get the new decals on thank you Ian. I learnt the Humbrol clear matt varnish when shaken before loading up the air brush leaves it looking matt and with a white powder finish? So i have not been shaking it before loading it up and that seems to work. ChallengerI..jpg

Hi Kirsten
Nice finish. Glad you sorted out the strip and respray. For info, fairy power spray works as well, but doesn’t smell like a hospital afterwards
Cheers

Hi Denise
Fine looking model and so glad the strip and respray went well. Great that Ian had the decals you needed.
