Are you heating the covering before pulling it off? That often helps. If the covering comes off but leaves the pigment you can sometimes lay a piece of clear packing tape over the pigment, press it down, and then heat it a little. That will sometimes pick the pigment up - it's hit-or-miss. Sometimes I just get stuck with a pin or knife picking at it to lift an edge enough to pull some more off.

I have been using the heat gun on it and the wing has been kind of easy but the fuse has so many blue chunks on it I can't get off..
