    Thanks. I normaly use the same "freezer-hot water-freezer-hot water" method

    Now re-painting my last two Pfalz D.III I had taken out the upper wing (just by pulling gently) and I was removing painting by submerging the model in pure alchool for a day or two ... and the undercarriage did come out by itself. I guess that the alchool may have disolved or softened the glue.

    Something I conclude from your and mine experience is that Pfalz D.III undercarriages are easier to remove than some other models. I've tried to remove Albatros D.V undercarriages and it is much harder -- almost impossible withouth breaking them

    As it was, it went much more smoothly than I had feared.
    Ouch Tim - was that pun intended ?

    I spotted it too Mike, and dismissed it as not down to our usual lack of standards. tim is obviously quite innocent in this.

    He just did it again Tim. It is so flat that you missed it. You won't be able to smooth that one over Mike.
