This is totally my fault but just as a warning to everyone, "acetone free nail varnish remover" works excellently on metal. However, i left some plastics in it overnight and this was the end result:
The models turned soft and some stuck to each other and the bases pretty much just melted. They are solidifying now though so I have a feeling that if I hadn't left them in the stuff overnight they may not have caused the damage.

for an extended report on simple green:
i use the stuff that comes in an engine degreaser spray bottle from Canadian Tire. i've left models both plastic and metal in there for over a month (forgot about them) with little to no issues (lead and pewter get a slight metal colouration to a deeper grey). also used to clean Forge World resin with no issues. (only soaked the FW pieces for a couple days though)
as an added bonus, simple green makes the superglued joints brittle allowing you to take apart the metal models and clean them up properly (helps with those old Rouge Trader pieces that need some TLC).
my0.02 worth, hope its of use,

Metal models: Pine Sol, straight up. Works perfectly for me, and isn't deadly toxic to everything in sight (including my cat, who likes to investigat things)
Plastic Models: Pine sol, 1:1 with water, no more than 90 minutes. Works adequately.
Simple Green, straight up. Works ok, safe.
Always use gloves when peeling paint.
