I decided to strip my Dyna Storm from it's very very 90's look and give a more stylish layout.

As I could not find any original decals I went for something different :) A small 'tribute' to Tamiya! Enjoy the pics and the 3 layers of paint and masking!

This is the best I could do and I'm pretty satisfied with it, have not stripped nor painted a lexan shell since round 1996 or so :) For the 'stipping' i used something we here in Denmark call 'Brown soap', a thick household soap that is very good at removing paints!

From this... Remember, always use protection :) To this! 1

Nice job you've done there. I've yet to dabble in paint removal but I fear the day is drawing nearer so am slowly doing my homework so I know what I'm doing when the time comes.

Thanks gecko-no-more I guess that you just have to find what works best for you, I've also used spray oven cleaner with ok results and some people use brakefluid (I'm not going there - at least not until I have an garage )

Awesome I love it. I think you've done a great job bringing this car up to date. It looks really good.... don't make us wait 14 years for the next paint job.

That is an awesome tribute to Tamiya. I wish we could get some 'brown soap' here in the states as it looks like it stripped the paint just fine with not any sign of damage too the lexan.

Thanks I'll try to find out if you guys 'over there' have something like it - I'll get back to that

Yep it works pretty good, and when the paint seems loose enough I normally use a toothbrush to scrub it off.
