    Let say I want to turn the green plastic of ROTF Voyager Long Haul...

    or the yellow plastic of HTFD Voyager Payload...

    red using the color-dye method!

    Is this possible? :confused: 

    If so, what exactly do I need to accomplish this? :confused:

    You'll end up with either brown or orange at best.

    I dunno, it might be possible to get the yellow to turn red if you're really patient, but whether you'd ever get it as red as you want is questionable.
    That said, you should at least be able to get it red enough to serve as a base, so that you can paint it the shade you want and not have to worry about the original plastic colour coming through if you get paint wear issues.
