    Part two!

    Next, it works better on the softer plastic of the arms and legs on the Classified figures. It does indeed work well on the harder plastic of the torsos, but it creates these pale wear stains. They can be scratched off (I usually use a toothpick, since it's hard but wont easily scratch the plastic itself). Here too, I'd recommend using just a Q-tip to and do your best to focus only on the immediate area of the camo stripe or pattern. Lastly, the stuff reeks worse than gasoline. I come from Vancouver actually, so I know the temperature now is still decent enough to open windows or do stuff outside lol (Not so in Montreal!). And finally, finally, definitely test it on something expendable first! Hope this helps dude! I customize too, and have destroyed much fodder through trial and error, lol.

    (Part one of my response: didn't know there was a text limit here, lol)
    Any how, no worries bro, I totally understand. Totally!
    The stuff I used for the Recondo legs is called Goof-Off. You can find it at Canadian Tire for around 12$. There's a few different kinds, but the one I use the one that comes in a little metal squirt can.

    This product eats hasbro paint for breakfast, but it's a bit of a Nuclear option though and has some caveats. First, it can and will both wear away and even stain plastic if you use too much and rub too hard. Short and gentle strokes with a Q-tip is usually the way to go with it. Cotton balls are good too, but the key again is not to rub too hard.

    Hi Nighthawk! In case you're on the lookout for my parts, I just wanted to let you know that I've got a bit of Classified custom fodder to sell on my ebay page.

    Specifically, I've got leg sets (hip cover, legs and boots) for Tiger Force Outback, TF Recondo (but with the yellow stripes removed) and for v2 Commando Snake Eyes, the one with the Breaker boots.They're on my ebay page here:

    No pressure at all of course. Just wanted to give you a heads up!
    Best Regards

    Will S
