I just finished using a lighter to separate some plastic from plastic.

Burned it gooooooood!!!!

*Ahem* But that's only really an option if you can stand for some damage of the piece. I could get away with it because once the model is assembled you won't see the effect (which wasn't too pretty).

For what you're aiming to do, I wouldn't recommend it; but some people could use it in other projects. I'll say it again though - it's not for those who want to keep the plastic in good condition. Desperate times, desperate measures, yadda yadda.

Good ol' Steve Vai trick. He admitted to using super glue if he gets a cut under his fingernail. I've accidentally gotten super glue there before, sounds like it would work to me. Just feels funny.

<returns to topic>

really, the only option is to try to break it apart. The freezer idea seem sound enough, just hold the parts REALLY close to the joint to avoid un-necessary bending, stressing, or (Tzeentch forbid) breaking.

my best be is to cut things you can and break the other parts with long nose pliers to get nice and close to the joint.

Hey there
I find this is a big problem when working with other "KIDS" model.lol
I do find that swan lighter fuel works well and dot 5 brake oil works at removing paint and glue.
But it does depend on what super glue it is.
If these do not work i would say try using very hot steem or ice cold water but you said these did not work.
You could buy some super glue deactivater "sorry about spelling" but it is hard to get hold of.

Hope this helps

Will this melt the plastic or make it tacky?
