Response to ak paints

Super Clean, an automotive degreaser, is great for stripping paint. It does not hurt plastic or resin and will remove most types of paint. Depending on the type of paint, how it was applied, how thick it is and how long it has cured, it will remove the paint in a few hours to overnight to a couple of days. I put the model in a small plastic container and pour Super Clean in until the model is covered. It also removes chrome from chrome plated model parts.

Simple Green and Purple Power Concentrate (used full strength) do about the same thing. Super Clean Purple Power and Simple Green can all be bought at Wal Mart.

Oven Cleaner also will do the trick, but it can also destroy photo-etch. Mr. Muscle works really well if you can find it. But, oven cleaners are also really harsh and caustic so be careful.
