i was wondering if anyones had any success stripping paint and undercoat off resin models, specifically ones from forgeworld? theres plenty of articles on removing paint and stuff from metal and plastic, but not resin. any help would be awesome. cheers!
When in doubt, more Bloodcrushers
Essentially, plastic is a form of resin, and the resin used in Forgeworld models is essentially the same as that used in standard Games-Workshop, so I would assume that you should have similar results using Simple Green.

I have no idea what it's called in english, but it's a red liquid thing with some of the same stuff that's in nail polish remover.
Gone in seconds without damaging the models. (For plastic use)

I used oven cleaner on resin models I wanted to remove paint from, it was very hit and miss though. You could give it a shot, dip the model in the foam for about 20 minutes then take it out and go at it with a firm brush, the paint should peel off easily.
be very careful with resin. Simple green is probably your best bet simply because it's the less caustic.
Brake fluid will definitely soften the resin and make things snap off (i learned that one the hard way) oven cleaner and acetone are probably going to be in the same boat.
you can EASILY melt resin, so take it very slowly, do multiple dunks and brush offs. then, when you think you're more or less happy, do a quick prime to see how it looks. remember, you don't necessarily have to take all the paint off for the model to look good once sprayed
