Hi,
I have purchase a brand new Piko D&RGW caboose, which has the Moffat tunnel branding which I would like to remove.
At present I don’t wish to go down the route of weathering my stock so need as near a perfect finish as possible.
I haven’t had any experience of this type of work on Piko products so hoped that some of you with experience could give me some advice please.
I have access to cellulose thinners, turps, enamel thinners etc from my 0 gauge adventures but wary of any effect they may have on this type of shiny plastic.
Thanks for any help!

This might work for you..
I know it works great for Bachmann, I haven't tried it on anything else though:

Thanks Greg,
It looks like it may be a general de-greaser. I have some stashed somewhere for use on the car.
