My new Wots Wot ARTF has some strange blemishes on the covering. Some reddish in colour, some more black. I've tried removing them using denatured alcohol but that did nothing - anyone got any tips for removing them?

Try acetone, and if meths or acetone won't shift it, then I'm afraid you may be stuck with it!

I thought denatured alcohol was meths?

Not seen marks like that before. Maybe they're flaws (faults) in the material?

Or white spirit?

amyl Acetate ? Test any of these solvents on scrap first as they may soften the plastics. However those marks look as though they are on the back. Maybe picked up by the sticky backing.

Sadly after some testing I think they are flaws in the covering itself. Don't suppose anyone knows the make and product code of the orange film used on the Ripmax Foss models?

WD 40 is a good mark/stain remover...what about some sticker's from a car shop to cover any marks or some solar trim.....
