How's the underlying plastic? Any smearing, discoloration or damage to the plastic itself?
I've heard that the yellow on his shoulders is painted and was recommended that the only way to get rid of the battle damage is to paint over it in a matching yellow.
Source: A semi-recent episode of RFC, obviously right around the time Springer got into people's hands.
Springer is indeed painted on those parts and the battle damage is on top of those apps, so you lose both when you try to get rid of one.
No damage to the plastic, and I worked around any areas with paint apps, like the faction symbol and the red paint on the wings cause i didnt want to smear it. So there's still some of the battle damage paint on the red stripes of the wings on my figure.
I'm attempting to use 99% on starscreasm..i have SOAKED the arms and used cotton swabs...that stuff is not budging.
I had a bad feeling about that. I used 91% and no matter how hard I scrubbed, it didn't make a dent. The stuff on the wings and fuselage, though, came off okay.
Does anyone have suggestions for getting at the details, though? I've removed the big splotches, but can't see to get at the stuff in the molded-in detail.
Use a toothbrush. That usually works.
ok so, for clear plastic, when it turns cloudly like that, hit it with a coat of future [i hand brush it on].
for example, removing the tint from the univ 2.0 swipe mold makes it a bit cloudy
but a coat of future fixes that up
