Minichamps decal stripping

Post  Cowley on Mon Oct 24, 2016 12:33 pm

Afternoon gents!... Wink

I am in the process of building a one-off Code 3 model based on an existing Minichamps release, and have a need to strip off some decals whilst preserving any tampo print. The decals seem very thin, and particularly stubborn to shift with a finger nail or the end of a cocktail stick.

Any advice of what products work on Minichamps decals?

Many thanks.

I have always used Autosol Metal polish.

Available from Halfords In the polish area of the store. Its in a tube, in a black & goild coloured box.

Cost no idea around a £5???

Dont go mental with it and use it with a bit of water to stop it heating up too much.

I use the end of a lego brick. More solid than a fingernail but soft enough not to damage, worked niceley on a BTCC Audi I made.

Many thanks for the advice mate. I never thought about using a Lego®️ block, but it sounds like it might just word.... Wink
