I feel your pain on the gobs of paint on a used model, I got this dreadnought that was pretty bad. I used simple green, let it sit about 24 hours, washed and brushed the paint off. Then soaked it again for another 24 hours and washed and brushed the paint off again. Most of it came off, still some bits in recesses and corners, but if you let it sit a little longer and get a stiffer brush. I use an AP brush, it's like a toothbrush but a lot stiffer, we use it when cleaning our rifles.
