I just received my second DST E, the first I plan on attempting to do the window work shown in the previous post. It looks fantastic.
But before that I had to attempt to get the only thing that bothered me about the 2013 Ent E from DST. Shown Below.
I was not familiar with the Mineral Springs solution to remove any sort of trademark writing or scuffs. What I did know from selling toys was a white eraser can take some scuffs off. I decided to give it a try with an assortment of weapons. Note I did not want to endorse a product brand.
The one thing I remembered from work was that if you were going to erase a scuff on a toy, it took time. Removing a trademark, I wasn't sure it would work. But as I CAREFULLY held the toy, and applied various degrees of pressure ..CAREFULLY
over time the trademark began to fade. The eraser does not chew into plastic, it essentially rubs the unwanted ink onto the eraser. And if you remember using an eraser in school you get eraser crumbs all over the place. This took time so i just watched/listened to a hockey game as I
CAREFULLY removed the ink. I DID NOT WANT TO LOOSE ANY AZTECA near the trademarks. After a while the results were positive.
Frankly I am not certain how long It took to complete the "erasing" of the trademarks on the Nacelles. Below you can see the Copyrighted E, and the ...well...erased copyright E. Sorry DST.
Here is another view. I cannot emphasize how careful one must be not to take out some of the nearby AZTECA.
I thought before I posted any RADICAL but SIMPLE method to get Rid of the Copyright's on the Nacelle's of the DST E, I should cycle through the Lights and sounds. Sure enough everything worked.
But this E took some Shipment scarring. Minor. Heck it will be my Battle Damaged "E."
Time to get the Gundam Pen ready to use. If anyone tries this trick with an eraser to remove the Copyrights on the DST E one must be Patient and have a variety of sizes of WHITE erasers to use. It is also messy. You will have eraser all over you after a while.
Just another clean up job.
