    You mean stripping off the paint?

    Acetone works great on metal models. Pure, from the chemist's or nail polish remover from anywhere. It will dissolve superglue and destroy plastic bases though.

    Something which works on plastic models as well as metal is just a really concentrated all-purpose cleaning fluid. Soak the model in it for a day or two, then brush the paint of with a toothbrush or similar.

    Hope that helped.

    I use Simple Green off advice from these very forums. Works like a charm on plastic, no damage, not toxic and very easy to find. Cheap as well.
    Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

    After reading this forum I may have to try Simple green on my metals too. I usually use acetone.
