Thanks Matt for the excellent review. Another great AK product. I haven't bought an AK product yet that hasn't performed 100% as expected.

LOL, yep it takes old paint off. I did the same testing and then ended up going through all my brushes to get them 'clean'. I had already cleaned the brushes good, but not good enough I guess.
great review. Have you cleaned the AB after spraying vallejo and AK paints ?? Works just as well.

There are many types of alcohols, both simple and complex. Tamiya paints use a mix of isopropyl and butyl alcohols. Judging by the reviewers statement of the cleaner reacting with Pollyscale I imagine it contains some kind of alcohol and that you probably shouldn't use it with Pollyscale. It seems to work great for everything else, though.

There is nothing I appreciate more than a review like this one, which puts a product through its paces in a series of real-world applications that other potential users are likely to encounter. More seasoned modelers --- like the three above --- adding their experiences to the mix only enhances this valuable service, and makes Armorama a must-read reference for its excellent new product reviews. Sincere thanks to you all.
