Low Cost Tips to Improve Your Railroad Modeling
Ever notice that solvent based styrene glues will remove paint? Why not turn this undesirable condition into an easy paint removal method!
Many of us paint our structures using various spraying methods. The results are very gratifying but the overspray can make solvent-based gluing of styrene models a real pain. The paint on the joints prevents good adhesion and can be very hard to remove. Using a small brush, simply paint the glue on the paint covering the joint to be attached. After twenty to thirty seconds, reapply the glue and using an X-acto knife (with a chisel blade) carefully scrape the softened paint from the areas in question. Repeat the method for any remaining paint.
