That's how I do it.

Response to Easy-Off Paint Stripping

Except I don't find it necessary to wait 30 minutes. 15-20 is fine; it's gonna do what it's gonna do in that time. Rinse under warm running water while scrubbing with an old toothbrush, and repeat as necessary. It might take several treatments, but I've done three to five "doses" in an hour to an hour and a half.

I've found that letting the model "soak" in a sealed Tupperware thing for the 15-20 minutes cuts the fumage down to almost nothing.

Always wear eye protection when working with E-O. It's LYE, ferpissake, and will permanently damage your eyes.

If your FIRST treatment with E-O doesn't take ANY paint off, forget it and move on to something else. If your first treatment takes ANY paint off, no matter how little, stay with it--it WILL eventually take it ALL off, though it might take a half-dozen treatments or more.

Remember, to a real modeler, kit instructions are just somebody else's opinion.
