Yesterday i made a few adjustments to my PE and scratchbuilt parts on my Bf109 builds and noticed a very nice side effect of my Mr Cement glue. It can remove CA glue stains on mentioned metal/PE parts!

It's not working in an instant more like removing dried white glue or Micro krystal clear but it works and the Mr Cement doesn't leave any markings or residues on the parts and you needn't any scratching to remove any leftovers. :thumbsup:

 

Don't know if this is already common knowledge to modellers but i'm pretty happy with this discovery.

 

 

cheers Chris

For the information, acetone removes CA.

 

Of course, you cannot put acetone on styrene, but on PE or even resin, it's useful.

Be careful with resin too, as I've had acetone attack it before. Not pretty!

It really depends of the type of resin. On most types of resin, rubbing some acetone is ok, but one better try on a scrap part (ie : pouring block).

Once, i tried to degrease some resin parts only with alcohol, and the resin became soft and sticky. Now i'm very careful.
