Welcome to Librarium Online!
It seems to me that Castrol SC is the choice for stripping paint off of miniatures, but I have a problem. Some of the models I want to strip are partially assembled (bought on the cheap from a friend who's lost interest in the hobby), and I want to know: How well does Castrol Super Clean lend itself to dissolving the glue that's holding the models together? If not so well, what would you guys recommend for the task?
If you want to seperate something glued together with super glue, then acetone(nail polish remover) will dissolve it, but you can usually just rip apart a superglued mini, the bond isn't as strong as plastic glue.
Apparently you aren't suppsoed to do this but you can let the models soak for about 2-3 hours (depending on the # of coats) in Pinesol. Thing is is to not let them soak longer than that because they'll melt all gooey like. And don't soak non-painted models in it either.
Don't put the word stripping in the title, we can get confused, exspecially when this is the painting forums...

Rep people if they help you!!!
Stripping- Sometimes involving a pole, commonly practised in cl..oh you mean the painting kind. Well, brake fluid is good, or Simple Green.
I'd go with Brake Fluid or Simple green.
but like someone above me said, WEAR GLOVES, i've found out the hard way why
