hi, im located in australia (sydney to be precise), and im looking for something that can strip paint from models of the plastic and metal range.
I know simple Green works well, but currently no store in aussie stocks them.
Castrol super clean is said to work wonders, but alas, no hardware/auto store stocks them in aussie.
Now my question is to all the australian gamers/painters here, What do you use to strip paint on models (on metal AND plastic models). And where can i buy them (in sydney)??

I sometimes find bottles of Simple Green at Reject Shop stores.
Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don't. Worth checking out though.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

I went out looking a while ago, and while I found simple green, I've heard that it can melt plastic if you're not careful. So I went looking for something similar to Pinesol; in a small hardware/supply store I found a product called "Jasol Surface Stripper", it's an acrylate floor polish remover (like Pinesol). I've tried it on a couple of things, and it does work well, within reason. it will strip any paint that is over the top of primer really quickly; interestingly it works quicker with black undercoat, whereas a white undercoat comes of really easily, and it will strip the primer too if you leave it for a few hours and don't mind a little scrubbing. You can get an interesting highlighting going if you don't scrub the black undercoat too much.
it might be worth looking for since it doesn't harm plastic, and doesn't smell at all (no gas masks needed)

Just becuase it doesn't have an odor doesn't mean you shouldn't wear a gas mask...
Brake fluid should do the trick. You should be able to get it easily enough at a gas station or auto store.
