I'm sorry - I forgot that there is more than one version. I have the MPC kit. This was the original from 1984 or so.
Just under an hour and a half the hand painted pieces are clean, the airbrushed pieces are starting to come clean. They're probably scrubable, but I'm not ready to prep or paint them, so we'll let them soak!Alright counting time this go around. 5/19/22 @0855 EST I've put the super clean in with some parts painted with acrylics by Tamiya airbrused on and GameWorkshops detailed by brush.

(The other day I knocked my X-Wing off the shelf and broke it, t'was a gift and was pressed in the late 70's... so it was warped beyond actually fitting together on more than one side anyways... probably lent to the breaking... anyways I've got boosters to repurpose now!)
Are you saying this clear is the brittle clear stuff that came off the top?PVD " chromed " plastic like that and all the chromed plastic in cars is coated with the 2-part urethane clear ,
like this stuff : https://www.spraymax.com/en/products/product/clear-coats-and-spot-blender/2k-clear-coat/
Ok, that makes sense. It dissolved slow in the SC, and it kind of sheeted off looking like cellophane. So the SC stuff does seem to work for just about everything, just not always in a matter of minutesIt's atop the vapor deposition aluminum .
They may have primed the piece with it to improve the appearance of the " chrome " by creating a uniform , smooth surface .
