Full model paint strip

Well, after basically stuffing up a paintjob, I now want to fully strip a model to redo it. I did finish painting the kit, tried to see if I could fix/camouflage it, but still unhappy with it.
Thread here:http://www.network54.com/Forum/110741/message/1289714559/Weary+FAMO

So now to strip... I have used windex before happily, but this kit has loads of photo etch on it, plus oils, pigments, acrylics, dullcote etc over it. Hopefully Windex will do the job, but if not, what else can i use?

Obviously something that wont damage the plastic, but also something that wont affect the glue for the etch parts. Also something that i can preferably just "wash" off, instead of scrubbing with a brush so I dont shear off any of the tiny aber PE parts!
