Jabba have you ever tryed recovering the horizontal tair surface of a very outdated sig 1/4 scale cub??? The way it is built you have to cover the stabilizer than aply the vertical fin and fin fethers. that area is out of bound once you commited to epoxy the fin to the stabilizer. RECOVERING is most definetelly not an option.
Not to mention the work it taks to create the delicate fin fillets and all the stretching involved in trying to make your model look half descent.
NO WAY!!! I don't re cover once it has been covered.
I will try acetone this afternoon and we'll see what hapens. I'll keep you guys updated. Mean while who has pure nitro for sale???
I'd like some for my work shop as well...

CA debonder is not acetone. Acetone is a solvent and may well effect the covering you are trying to clean. I have used CA debonder many times and it may take some work. Applying and scrubbing then reapplying and scrubbing but the ca will come off and I have yet to damage covering with the debonder. What ever you use please take the time to try it on a scrap piece or on a part of the plane that does not show.

Good advice from Dennis re: testing a scrap piece first.

If your covering is Monocote or Ultracote, the Acetone will not harm it.
I have bought old, badly stained airplanes covered with these, and cleaned the whole surface with acetone.
The airplanes look like new when done!

Gary, you can have a bottle of Nitro no prob.
I have a gallon in the garage.

First thing I try is rubbing alcohol. It is a good universal solvent. It will not take off all the ca, but the next weapon (which has already been mentioned) is acetone - it will desolve CA....

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.
