Stripping GW resin?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if GW resin reacts to poorly to LA Cleaner, if i were to strip a painted model?  

Someone wanted me to repaint their model, but the paint on it may be too thick for me to reprime without losing detail. 

 

Anyone have a good suggestion if not LA Cleaner or Simple Green?

It should be fine. Neither one is acetone or organic solvent based. If you're worried, just put it in for a short amount of time, scrub it, and evaluate.

 

I'm assuming this is a GW Finecast mini? It isn't different than any other two-part casting resin.

Thanks for for posting such a clear picture of the results. 
 

Q: why is his shield still painted, was that paint different? tougher paint?

@TGP i was not sure about that either. I had to call my friend who asked me to paint it, "why is the shield black?"  It was primed differently than the rest of the model originally.  I also couldn't get all the paint out of the lettering recesses, but there's plenty of detail and depth for me to work with to all paint effectively. I was a bit struck by that shield too once i got everything else off.  Why won't this come off?  But one i realized it was fine for me to prime over, i just went with it.
