Here is Part 1 if you forgot.
Right before the Indy Open I changed up my list, and needed to strip and
paint some models. I wasn't sure how to go about since they were
plastic. I started off with simple green, but wasn't thrilled about how
slow it was taking. I dumped them in pinesol for a day and that did the
trick. But I figured I would run a little experiment comparing the two.
But then after the Indy open, little 40k was to be done. The new job
started and life happens.
So I left most of my models soaking in simple green. But I took two old carnifex heads that were painted and put them each in a cup of solution. This way I would have something roughly equal to compare with.
At some point in the future I'll try and get around to testing different dilutions. 1:2, 1:5, 1:10 and see if that changes how they perform. Until then, I hope this helps people trying to refurbish old models. If you have any questions please ask.
