Not found this topic on the forum, need help removing the decal/tampo from an Exoto Tyrrell, "Cevert"

Have removed many decals before, but not on an Exoto, the airbox is plastic.

As Exoto spares are rare, i would hate to damage the box.

Anybody done it?

If the airbox comes away easily, spray over the whole box with matt black automotive paint.
If the airbox looks too well attached, a piece if matt black decal stripe should cover the white area.
As a last resort, I would hand paint with acrylic hobby paint.
You could also use enamel, although this doesn't like to stick easily to certain kinds of untreated 'oily' plastic, such as ABS.

If you don't have decals and are looking for some, try these alternatives.
I have used their products, and they quite good:

Nah, Jackie's jumping out and handing over to Francois.
It's practice and Ken's too tight to give them a car each.

I think its an Exoto mistake, the car was sold as the Canadian race winner, hence the rain tyres,
and did not run with any name on the air box.
That is why i changed it.
