    I do have paint stripper but it does not work on plastic, instead it melts it. 8|
    Anyway I have crimson fists and am hoping to repaint them into a fortress grey and red gore style but as of yet I need to start paint stripping my plastic models.
    Please if you have helpful advice, please say.

    PS. I have tried hot water but it doesn't work.

    Brake Fluid. Leave the models in for around 5 hours, remove, and run under a tap. Easy, reletivly cheap, and no damage to the plastics.

    I concur; Brake fluid is the best for plastics.
    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    PineSol works better than brake fluid, and doesn't smell so horrible, I can usually throw a mini in PineSol and retreive it 2-3 hours later and scrub all the paint off. It has even removed all the paint off an old Librarian I had and that thing had like 4 or 5 coats of paint.
