Re: Tangent Tank Car Paint Removal

On an older run of their 1917 design cars I simply used Micro Sol (red label).   I cut a tiny piece of paper towel the size of the lettering and placed it over the lettering to be removed and soaked it with the Micro Sol.  After 10 or 15 minutes the lettering could be rubbed off with a toothpick.   I have not tried this with the 1948+ cars.   Good luck.

First off, if this is the wrong list for this please let me know and any suggestions for another list woU\Uld be appreciated.


I am seeking advice on the removal of the paint/ink that Tangent Scale Models applies to their GATX 1948+ tank cars and their Cosden 3 Dome tank cars.


Bought some ICG Decals and plan to strip and renumber them.
