Default Home Made Model Stripper

Seeing as how I just got my paints today I was messing around knowing I was gonna wind up stripping the model.

What I'm wondering is if anyone else as used this mix before?

a 50/50 mix of ISO Alcohol and Peroxide (I played bathroom chemist as an 8yr old so I knew this was safe)

Then I added some toothpaste for grit.

I let the model sit in extremely hot water with some ISO in it for about five minutes before I started started scrubbing with a tooth brush.

This was the result:


Sorry for the crap pic, but my camera is picky about its focus. It took about 5 minutes to get that much off, most primer and paint came off.

I threw it up into the air and let hit the floor to see it got overly brittle or anything, it only popped off the base.

Nice I think I'll try the mix myself, but no I have never heard of or used this mix.
