I was painting my NF and I screwed up. How do I take the paint off. Yes I did do a search to try and find out.

Sandpaper will be a chore, but it will work. You can try Paint Clean Up from Wal-Mart. Test it on something else first, though. It may or may not take the paint off and prolonged exposure may damage the plastic.

Personally, I think it's a better idea to just buy a new shell.

Be careful if your trying to chemically strip the paint.
Most paint strippers are not good news for plastic.

Do a search of how model train enthusiasts strip paint off thier train cars.

Ive heard brake fluid and oven-cleaner can do the job.

If you can, just let it dry and paint over it. (that really depends on the type of paint you're using.)

I agree with Anubis, It's easier just to get $5 and buy a new NF.

Probably dead by now, or something.
