Just one word of warning … There’s no such chemical as “Lacquer Thinner”.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
What’s sold under that generic name is any blend of acetone or other ketones, alcohols (many different), petroleum distillates like toluene, acetates, ethers, plus who knows what. Every brand is DIFFERENT. Some “lacquer thinners” curdle some lacquers causing the entire mess to turn to Jello. Their relative effects on various model paints is anyone’s guess. Many lacquer thinners will violently attack some plastics like styrene.
USE CARE, and experiment first on some hidden or unimportant area.
