    This is a question that I myself have been pondering. My dad says that you can use like paint remover (or was it nail polish remover?) to get it off but I am still dubious. I am looking forward to hearing from other people.

    Goto the painting section of this forum. There's a pinned article about stripping.

    I personally recommend Castrol Super Clean, but goto the painting section for more ideas

    Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.

    Get a thing of vinegar and an old tooth brush. Put the model in the vinegar and let it sit a few minutes and then scrub it and let it dry. Repeat until finished. Don't leave them in too long though and be sure to let them dry of the plastic can start to melt.

    nonono, u gotta use like bleach or something, pinesol, it takes off the paint good, butt u gotta wait a while, pour some in a cup and dump the marines in. wait like 20 minutes??(I dunno) but i can guarantee some paint will come off, I dont know about metal marines..anyways, after u finish waiting, take the marines our (let em dry if u want) and scrub the paint off with a pipe cleaner or tooth brush, or use paper towel and your hands.

    Castrol Super Clean. You can find it at any AutoZone, O' Reilly's, heck maybe even Wal-Mart.

    Great stuff. Soak your boys for about 30 minutes, take a toothbrush to them, and you're ready to rinse and paint. Works equally well on plastic or metail minis. Also will weaken glue bonds if you leave your stuff in overnight.

    It will also take off non-acrylic type paints too if you basecoated in an enamel by accident or something.

    Doesn't melt plastic or take off any of the detail. It's the best stuff for the job, believe me!
    We all carry on,
    When our brothers in arms are gone.
    So raise your glass high
    For tomorrow we die,
    And return from the ashes you call.

    Just raid your mothers cabinent, or wifes, and use a bottle of oven cleaner and toothbrush. However you need to wear rubber gloves when doing this because the oven cleaner will eat through several layers of skin and plastic gloves don't last to long either.

    if you use nail polish you will lose a fair bit of detail on your model.

    I always thought that GW paints were water based. So putting the model in hot water should get the paint off
    if anyone finds avatar offensive just pm and i will change it
