For my first model since I joined I'm doing the re-issued Tamiya Lotus 49. I want to dechrome several parts, especially a section of the exhaust pipes that were white in the real car. I have tried soaking test parts of the chrome plated sprues in Dunne's Store bleach; Supervalu bleach and Domestos - but none work, even after a couple of hours. I tried sanding part of the chrome to get the stripping started, but that didn't work either. Can anyone suggest an alternative method as I don't want to start sanding the whole lot. I'd like to finish the model this year!!
Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
It's worth a try as sanding is not the way to go. Let us know who you get on.
There's also a cleaner in Tesco that guys use with great success. Also brake fluid works too.
