stripping 2 pack epoxy paint
« on: August 18, 2016, 10:52:51 PM »

After the success of the 'Fantasy Huntress' I'm looking to redo the old aerokits  Huntsman in new colours , I sprayed this 30 years ago in Humbrol two pack Black (wooden hull)
Will NITROMORS shift this ?
Or is it 'sanders elbow' as the only alternative  ?
It has to come off as there's water damage in places & the paint has partially lifted here & there .

if its a wooden hull Bill I would test [size=0px]NITROMORS on a small piece under the hull but keep a careful watch on the result, you could use [/size]NITROMORS sparingly leave for a few minutes then give it some elbow with wire wool may take a few go`s at it Bill but would save damaging your hull, you would have to wash the NITROMORS off with water ensuring you get all the chemical off without water logging the wooden hull

 {:-{  that's the problem with wood hull's , getting rid of any chemical / brake fluid / etc residue before it soaks into the wood . . .
The ideal solution would be just to flat the existing paint down & go over it , but there's too many places where it's starting to lift .
