I could probably shoot molten lava through my Badger 200 and not hurt it.

Quite possibly.

I like the Modelmaster Acryls---they're "ok". But I love, love, love Tamiya Acryls. And---if you want a "bulletproof" paint base color, mix it with Tamiya Lacquer thinner instead of the X20 thinner. That shit is rock hard after 24 hours.

I had heard one time that soaking Friulmodel's white metal track links in dilute nitric acid was a great way to remove the mold-release. I tried it a couple times and not only did it remove said mold-release, but it gave the surface of the parts a verrrrry finely pitted finish, which was perfect for painting, AND it darkened the bright silver metal to a light steel color.

Worked well.

Till one time I put a new set of Tiger II tracks into NON-diluted, still-CONCENTRATED nitric.

10 seconds and an orange cloud later, I realized that I fucked up.

Dark gray sludge.

Sorry about laughing, but I just have this crystal clear vision of the look on your face as that orange cloud appeared....

You've seen in movies or TV where somebody looks into a crystal ball and sees smoke-obscured visions?

I looked into that orange cloud and saw forty $1 bills disintegrating

I still use nitric, but it's diluted as hell (maybe ~ .2 molar) and I take the tracks out when the bright silvery shine goes away.
