I use pine-sol and a toothbrush for the stubborn spots. Usually let it soak for about6 hrs for plastics and it peels right off (basically). For metal, it should work even better.

I was under the impression that Pine-Sol doesn't work for metals.

I haven't actually tried it on metal until today, so I will see how this turns out and let you know how well it works on metal.

It does, just not all that well compared to some other methods. Plus it makes your models smell no matter how many times you rinse them.

I don' t know if I am doing right but I usually put metal and plastic models in a cup full of alcohol overnight and next day with a toothbrush I rub the rest of the paint away

Works for me...


In the end there is only Chaos...
