Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm about to repaint my army, but instead of adding another layer I'm going to strip. I have both metal and plastics, and I used GW paints. Any idea how?
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because they *****ed me off.
Use the search
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
nitromoors or turps will clean them jsut watch your skin (use gloves or for all you younguns out there get your parents to do it hee hee hee hee hee hee ) and wash them very well after they stripped cos otherwise they new coats wont stick

I wouldnt use brake fluid on plastic models, it will melt them completely, and your skin as well. Use the method described before, do a search for stripping plastics.this made me laugh so much...quite risque!but instead of adding another layer I'm going to strip
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

Try SimpleGreen, its a household cleaning product. I haven't used it yet myself but I plan to. I hear its supposed to work quite effectively on both metal and plastics.

Yeah, Simple Green's the way to go in America, I myself live in Australia and we don't have it here so I just used Ajax Spray n' Wipe. Worked really well for me

CASTROL SUPER CLEAN! It's better than simple green (in my opinion). It just bubbles up and comes right off. Here is a guide from a friends site showing how easy it was.
Best part about this was he lost no detail on the plastic models!!!
It's a standard cleaner. Bought it from an auto parts store. It's for degreasing or something. Came highly recommended from a post he read. Might be able to find it in the auto section of a Wal-Mart or something too.
And yes, it's a general product. (USA and all)
Here is some information about it. Compared to Simple green. They say it's more harmful to skin use gloves, but it worked GREAT on the models. http://www.simplegreen.com/pdfs/safetycomparechart.pdf
Here's an example of where to buy it. (Bear in mind this link shows a case, it's about $5 a bottle)
BTW, I just talked to my friend who suggested "Castrol Super Clean", he told me he ran a test. He left 2 models in solution for one week.
One model was in the Castrol Super Clean...
The other was in Simple Green...
The simple green actually ate some of the detail from the models and super clean left all the plastic intact
