Removing decals from Plastic containers

Rate this question



I have 2 Dapol 45ft containers and 2 20ft Bachmann containers that I want to remove the decals from so that I can spray paint them.. Has anyone done this and if so what worked for people? I have tried white spirits and Nail polish remover but both didn't seem to have any effect on the decals

Try using T-Cut on a cotton bud or Q tip.


Use a VERY small amount on the cotton bud and stroke the decal very gently to prevent any damage to the underlying paint. Go slowly, it takes a while but eventually the decal will be removed. Once it's gone, take a clean cotton bud and gently polish away the remaining T Cut.
