Hi Guys,
I have some of the "newish" Tamiya two part epoxy putty that I am going to use for making Zimmert, but have no idea what to use for cleaning up of my Zimmert tools when done?
Had no luck googling for an answer
Cheers Mike

Generally I have found that epoxy putties can be cleaned up with water, or at worst isopropyl alcohol, if the epoxy is not allowed to dry.

Once dry, generally only mechanical removal is possible, i.e. scraping, sanding etc.
