    There is a GREAT product out there that the railroad modellers came up with called Scalecoat II washaway. Plop your model in a tub of this stuff for 24 hrs and ALL the paint can be removed with a toothbrush and some running water. Fantastic stuff for cleaning airbrushes too. I recommend it highly. Here's a link, it's at the bottom of the page.

    Lopoking good.

    But how much is a bottle of a brake fluid R-3 or DOT-3 or DOT-4?
    Also a bottle of "laxative" for pipes called here in Poland "mole" and known as Tiret or Liquid Plumr ?

    Both of those are about half the price or less. Dot-4 costs anywhere from 5 to 9$ for 16 to 32 oz (depending on the manufacturer). :)

    When I used brake fluid it removed the putty and glue also. This product only removes the PAINT.

    It's just another option guys.

    Hi
    Just a quick question, does brake fluid remove all glues or just certain ones?
    Cheers
    Jerry
