    OK so today I decided to strip the tribal tattoos off ROTF Starscream... I'm using 70% isopropyl alcohol and q-tips and everything is coming off fine except wheni get to the indents in the mold the alcohol isn't taking the tattoo off it's only taking it off the flat surface... does anyone know how i can get it off? and yes i read the help thread but it doesn't cover cracks... =(

    did you try to let it soak and then go at it with an old toothbrush?? That's what I'd do.

    How long did you let it sit for? Also, did you soak the parts in a bath of alcohol? And you're using 70% as opposed to me using 90... Can ya get 90? Idk, maybe try a small tipped... Something a dig it out like evaunit13 said to try. I'd think a small eye glass repair flathead would work ok.
