    My wife wants to repaint one of her Galactica titaniums. What does she need to do to remove the paint and what kind of paint does she need to use?

    You don't have to remove paint. I've painted quite a few titaniums. Ok, here's what you need to do.

    Go out and buy Testors Acrylic paint from Wal*Mart, and a few brushes wouldn't hurt either. Now, just paint! You'll get better as you go along!

    Best of luck man!

    Google it, dude. Lots of great tutorials on how to remove paint and what paints to use on specific surfaces.

    I wouldn't remove the paint either, just wash the vehicle in soapy water and the paint there will act as your primer. Then paint over it as you choose. Check out my site for some painting guides too, they have the links to buy paints and the how-to of the techniques used for painting anything from minis to full sized figures.
