How to remove super glue from a plastic model? Answered

I have a space marine that I got from Games Workshop. I'm trying to take his backpack off so that I can do a conversion on it. The only problem is that it's super glued in place. Is there any way to get it off?


Super glue isn't water proof. Soak in warm water until loose.

Warm soapy water.

Work into gap twixt torso and back-pack by gently scrubbing with a small brush, such as an old toothbrush.

Carefully work a thin Xacto knife (or any thin blade knife) around and under the piece you're trying to remove and then gently try to pry it loose. If you are lucky, you may be able to work it free without damaging any visible part of the pieces.

I tired that and I broke my xacto knife.
