Fixing a mistake in a dipped canopy


Recommended Posts

I dipped a canopy in Tamiya Clear and it looks fantastic except that a large bit of dust landed on it. Is there a good way to fix that? I've removed clear from clear parts before using alcohol, but it makes the clear parts foggy.

Try dipping it again into some sacrificial clear. Hopefully, the mote will float away and you’ll be able to re-dip it in some fresh stuff. That’s assuming the Tamiya clear is acrylic? :hmmm:

If you'd used 'Klear' then ammonia would remove the stuff so that you can start again, just don't get too near to the bottle as it smells truly awful!


Not sure if this would work with other 'dips' as there are so many out there now all with different chemical make-ups.
