After I have stripped the paint from a model, I always wipe the parts down with Rubbing Alcohol before I start to paint again. Seems to get rid of any nasty stuff that is left over.

Question: after stripping paint, wash parts in soapy water and/or clean with rubbing alcohol? I haven't heard of the rubbing alcohol idea for cleaning. It makes sense either way, I suppose. Alcohol may remove stripping residue left that soapy water could leave on the parts. Interesting!

I have used the rubbing alcohol since I was a kid. I was told it removes the release agent left over from the molding process. It made sense then and still does, or maybe it's a habit I got into and never broke.

Made an exhaust tip, just to give it a difference.


Fitted the cab to the chassis


then i had a bout of "getting on with it" and didn't take any further photos until this happened !!!
