    Is it possible to use hot, boiling water to straighten the tails of AoE Deluxes Slash and Strafe and not remove the paint on them in the process?

    My dad advised me to use a hair dryer, though I haven't tested it yet.

    I straightened Strafe's tails by holding them over an oven burner until the started drooping, then (using a heat-resistant glove) held them out straight under cold running water. They're VERY straight now.
    I haven't done Slash's as it could be problematic because it was sculpted with a curve.
