Using brake fluid to strip paint

So Friday I put about 50 minis into a pitcher of brake fluid and left them overnight. Hit them with a brush under running water this afternoon and had no issues. Sort of a drag it didn’t eat the model RR balast I had used to base them originally. So spent another two hours remounting them on new bases. The process darkened the plastic a little. But I don’t see any loss of detail on them.

It was sort of sad when I got to the first mini I’d painted though. But my original paint job on my Black Templars was craptastic and this is about the only way they’ll see the table again.

Should get the remaining parts got my Long Fangs on Monday. And then there us a whole lot of priming to do.
