Future floor polish works great on canopies and windows for joe vehicles and plastic models. It's a clear acrylic and will remove scratches and defog clear plastic parts.

Question: Did Pastx change the scent of the plastic on the canopies? The reason I ask is that the Skystriker canopy I have smells, for lack of a better phrase, like barfy crayons. It's the weirdest thing but over time the plastic absorbed this really funky odor and I want to deodorize it in the worst way. Maybe this compound will clear off the top layer and remove some of the odor?

I dont think mine had any kind of smell to it. I just took a wiff of mine and it smells like plastic. Only way to find out would be to use the cleaner. It might get rid of the smell.

I wonder how this combined with the peroxide could help reduce the yellowing of my Skystriker canopy?

It sounds scary, but different grades of fine sandpaper from coarsest to one that basically feels like paper, then using a platic polish(mine is a liquid that contains fine sand) works pretty well for cleaning up scratched windshields and even regular vehicle surfaces. I had a 25th rattler with a minor cigarette burn(ouch!) on the wing and it is gone entirely. Tested this half-heartedly on an original HISS canopy that was quite beat up with no visibility at all, and although some scratches are visible, it is remarkably clear and shiny. Do not, however, attempt to polish a HISS body because it will ruin the plastic's matte surface.

What I like to do when I get price tag glue on clear plastic packaging is to use a bit of Gojo hand cleaner. Make sure it's the smooth kind without any pumice or grit. It loosens and takes of any glue and the clear plastic packaging is nice and polished. I imagine it would work well on any clear plastic, but I never actually tried it on any toys.

Maguire's is good stuff... But I have a Skystriker canopy that is very yellowed. Does the peroxide method really work?

O.k. Sorry to revive an old thread, but I have just fixed the machine gun on my Rattler. It was missing an I heated up the plane and inserted a new gun. However, after heating up the plane I have some discoloration from the heating. Is there any way to get it back to its nice blue color?
