For metal models i find that cellulose thinners is the best by far, but it eats plastic and glue and is seriously toxic, but on the plus side leaves almost no trace of paint even in the recesses

This seems to be something of a necessity for those of us in the UK, especially those who are starting off and are most likely going to screw up like me.

Good work ^^

I find that Cif powerclean works wonders.

I left a plastic terminator in the stuff for around 24 hours, just washing the terminator got most of the paint off. Instead of eating the paint, it seems to remove the bond between the paint and the plastic/primer which means the paint flakes straight off.

It also works for metal models as well if not better.

hey, i was wondering if anyone can confirm the Pine-Sol method works on both plastic and lead mini's without any harm because i have 4 teams from ver.1 blood bowl that i'm looking to repaint but really don't want them to melt or anything

I use the toxic, non kiddy safe, brake fluid method, the thicker and nastier the paint the better... You get a mini that's had 4 nice thick coats, soak it overnight and it comes out with the paint all bubbled up and detached from the model 0 adhesion, you can pull it off with your (gloved) fingers. I'm never in that big a hurry though, a day - two days in the dunk tank makes no odds to me. Ive used this method for over 100 minis now, plastic and metal. I do find it weakens superglue...

I tried a supermarket basic range household cleaner and was very disappointing, tried white spirits on a plastic model - that was "interesting"
