I will begin the process tomorrow with 91% alcohol. It will then take a couple of weeks to carve, cut and redetail these castings. They are nice castings but still need some work. I’ll post pics as I progress.

What exactly are you going to do to those 3 cabeese and that cabin car?
I've had great success with soaking models in brake fluid to remove paint. The brake fluid doesn't harm plastic. I actually left some in brake fluid for months to see what would happen and it didn't damage the plastic.
I like the purple Super-Clean jar, that you can find in automotive stores. Takes care of your paint in a few hours.
Looks great. How are you doing your rivets?
Malcolm, you have your PhD in caboose construction............fantastic work as usual.
Beautiful detail work, Malcolm! The rivet work is terrific.
