Response to Re: Using Easy-Off Oven Cleaner as a paint remover...?

Just place the parts (or built model) you want to strip in the sink or in a plastic tub and spray the Easy-Off directly on. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes, then use an old toothbrush to scrub away the Easy Off/paint/decal slurry under running tap water. You may have to repeat or let it sit longer depending on the type and thickness of the paint you're removing.
The Easy-Off won't mar or eat into colored plastic parts but it may produce a "bleached" effect. I always remove clear parts before stripping just to be safe. You can mask off cockpits or other areas you want to protect with ordinary masking tape - as long as you have a good seal, Easy-Off won't soak through the tape.
Make sure you are working in a WELL ventilated area as Easy-Off fumes are intense. You may want to wear rubber cleaning gloves as it can chemically burn your skin.
That's about all there is to it. Simple, fast, cheap, and effective.
