Today this in the mail: one excellent Corgi Electro Rockets car.
Alfa Romeo Montreal.
Body in excellent condition, no paint lost and interior(contacts) also in excellent condition.
Just a good polish, a battery and let's go.

Bubble bubble make some trouble. Looks like an alien scull is forming in that foam from What, Oven cleaner?

Yes, oven cleaner.
The plastic bodies and window in a box, ovencleaner.
Wait a day and you can clean the bodies and the window.
Then primer and paint.

Slow oven cleaner. The longest I have had to leave even a badly painted set of tires and a window unit is about half an hour. Run it under warm water and all is gone. That is why I like Easy Off

They certainly come very clean with that oven cleaner. Great to start with.

Better picture of the paint color. In your spray booth it just looks like intense blue chrome paint. It is very shiny there. The last 2 pictures are much better for color.

Thanks.
