Ultrasonic Baby!

One of the many dangers of watching YouTube is that you think something someone else has done is a good idea and you decide to give it a go. I was looking for alternative ways of getting the paint off models and there were several references to ultrasonic cleaners.

These things are cheaper than you would think at £20 on eBay. Methylated spirits seems to be the stuff of choice to remove paint and so far the results have been pretty good. So I bought one…

The first model zapped was a really old beakie Imperial Space Marine from the multi part box set from way back in 1988 I think…

It took a bit of extra scubbing with a tooth brush in a bowl of warm water, but it has come out rather well.

The next batch going in are some old Space Wolf Terminators and a number of 1980’s lead Space Marines with various weapons and wargear.
