Default white sprit on loco bodies ?

Hi,
I have seen a few tips recently about weathering, using powders or paints, and then using white spirit to thin or to create streaks down a locomotive body. Has anyone used white spirit on a locomotive body - I always thought it would melt or soften, or take the paint off, does it cloud clear plastic?

Hi rusty - I can't really answer your question, but I would seriously advise that before putting white spirit on a loco body, that you experiment on either part of the loco you will never see or on an old wagon, to see whether there is any reaction. Hopefully someone will give you an authoritative answer soon. BB

I've never had a problem weathering with white spirit washes on Airfix style models.
