BMF goo removal
Posted 12 June 2006 - 03:43 PM
a canopy with Bare-Metal Foil.
What is new (to me anyway) is that WD-40 is now marketed in a 'pen' applicator with a felt tip...kinda
like a magic marker. This works great for clean-up between frames.

Anyone tried it on Parafilm? I hate scraping it off...Might try it myself
you won't stop making sense
But my tongue still misbehaves and it
keeps digging my own grave

one of the uses is removing glue residue. So it might work for Parafilm.....don't know if this packaging
is available yet down under, but the regular spray stuff is the same
I wish I would have heard about WD-40 before I tried Meguiars #2 mirror glaze on my Kanonvogel. The
BMF masking instructions somewhere on the Net mention using #3 glaze and I figured since #2 is
very similar (finer polish) it would work......it doesn't :angry: Now I have a Stuka that is totally done
without a canopy because the #2 stuff crazes clear plastic. Almost makes me want to waste $70 on
another kit just for a canopy. Does anybody know how/if I could get a replacement from Hasegawa?

Thanks for the tip on WD40. Very handy!
Dragon USA is the importer for Hasegawa kits (I believe they service Canada as well). Here's their contact info:

I got a complete clear sprue for the Hasegawa 1/32 Storch from them last year for about $6 USD.

parts too. But I don't hear back from them then your information will definitely help!
I've been thinking of building the Storch....how is that kit anyway?

The Hasegawa Storch is one of their finest 1/32 kits. Absolutely beautiful. The cockpit is very visible under all that 'glass', and while the kit parts are sufficient, there's almost unlimited detailing possibilities.
Good luck with the Stuka canopy!
