    Paint Thinner

    does anyone know if paint thinner can be used to safely remove paint from plastic models without damaging the plastic?

    Try Simple Green. I don't think paint thinner will work or acrylic paints.

    BSA - Paint Strippers!

    Someone posted that link another time and I saved it when I was looking for the same info.

    For plastics, I'm pretty sure any paint thinner will eat the models.

    It's not listed on that link's list of different strippers, but I swear by simple green. I have three full tubs of it setup in my room right now cleaning off various different things.

    Simple green won't ruin your skin like everything else. It might dry it out a bit, and if your fingers are all cut up it stings a bit.

    It works better on metals then plastics. White primer is a beast to try and strip.

    Make sure you have a good hard bristle tooth brush and some pipe cleaners. Also tooth picks are handy.

    I've found that leaving stuff submerged for a couple weeks or even as long as a month will make the paint easier to strip.

    Newer paint strips better then older paint.

    Models might fall apart in it.

    Never tried stripping models with green stuff on them.

    Uhm.. that's all the advice I can think of right now.
