    I bought a seeker from eBay and I want to give him a thorough cleaning. I'd like to separate the diecast body from the plastic parts so that I can give the plastic parts an alcohol wipedown without messing up the factory paint.

    I took the arms off no problem and the crotch screw, and I can see two screws on the insides of the legs that I can't access yet. Are there any other screws to remove before I try to pry the plastic from the diecast body?

    2 screws on nosecone
    3 screws on chest piece
    2 screws on feet
    2 screws on inner thigh

    once you remove the three chest screws the whole seeker can be taken into smaller parts

    I found the two extra screws hiding behind his chest stickers. So once I removed those it was easy to disassemble him. Thanks everybody!
