How long can you keep Modelstrip?
This pot has been on my shelf for at least three years to my knowledge.
The mess in the plastic bag beside it is a resin container moulding which I was recently given. It was in GWR livery and had to be repainted to suit my timescale, plus I have a sheet of Cambridge Custom Transfers which I will use on this model.
Back to the Modelstrip. I added small amounts of water and coaxed the lumps into useable paste, the hard lumps were removed and when to a useable consistentcy the container was liberally coated. Then it was placed into a plastic bag and sealed.
Over the space of a few hours I kneaded the paste into the nooks and crannies of the moulding to make sure all the paint will be removed. Tomorrow morning will see the container removed and will clean it up with tap water and an old toothbrush. hopefully then it will be ready to prime and paint, if not some more Modelstrip will be applied and the process repeated.
This time the whole moulding has been stripped of paint ready for re-painting.
