Hi all. I had recently acquired an old, 1970, Testors P-51 plane. The only thing missing was the glow plug, otherwise complete and a cracked canopy. It would appear to me that the plane was originally molded in yellow. Someone back when had decided to paint it dark metallic grey on top and dark metallic blue on the underside, with what appears to be something like Testors model paint. Anyways, I have no attachment to this thing whatsoever, but would like to try and get it back to original anyways. Also, the good thing is that it does not appear to be roughed up prior to painting. It does lightly flake off if scraped with a small screwdriver. so if anyone here has any ideas as to what to do, I would be willing to try.

Place plastic in a bag and add enough brake fluid to make contact with all surfaces, let it set over night or 2-4 hours, scub clean with warm water and toothbrush.

Thank you. I will have to give that a try, after I get out and buy some brake fluid.

I'm pretty certain that these were moulded in yellow but finished in chrome plating.  The chrome didn't stand up to nitro well at all & I've never seen one which has been fueled that doesn't have yellow showing through the chrome.  The glow heads come up pretty regularly on ebay, both NIP and used, usually still attached to an old pipebomb engine.  Often it's easier to pick up a junk engine for parts than to locate a separate glow head.  If worse comes to worse, MECOA have head adaptors to take a standard glow plug.  http://www.mecoa.com/acc/adaptors/index.htm
Scroll to the bottom.  While the engine is different, the heads are the same.

Yeah I found one of these...70% chrome..30% yellow! Mines all intact but doesn't look to me like it would even fly. The WenMac beech bonanza I had as a kid was the same size... Only was able to get it airborn once and it sucked in the air!
