Tamiya Extra Thin clean-up?
Posted by Oxboy on Thursday, April 26, 2018 2:58 PM

What is the best practice for cleaning up an accidental dry smear of this stuff where you don't want it (say a wing panel or something)?

Water only?

Tamiya X-20A?

91% Alcohol?

Light sanding?

Just let the primer coat cover it?

 

Thanks.

If just "overflow" from the brush, I just hit it with a light scuff of gray scotchbrite or 400/600 sanding pad.

If you happen to have a finger print then depending on how bad determines what corrective measures are needed, sand, fill, prime, etc.

When that happens to me, I let it dry and sand it away with a fine grit sanding stick.

Or round file...

Repair is the other option, but not removal. The glue is long gone.
