I am redoing my Ork models. I don't want to paint over them I want to strip them.My painting has gotten a lot better in the last year. I used to paint models many years ago and techniques I used to use are coming back to me. I want to know if there is a way to strip plastic models without ruining them.

Fairy Power Spray??? Sounds like something that comes out of tinkerbell's ass:biggrin:(HA,HA). Thanks for the advice I will try the oven cleaner. I hope it does not melt the models.

Brake fluid works extremely well and all you need is an old toothbrush a few minutes... then wash the figure off with water.

Simply Green works in the same manner; but it will take a few minutes extra (a lot safer for you though)... Dip the figure, give it a scrub, repeat as neccesary and then wash off with warm water. It took me about 1 hour to do up a Tau Hammer Head that had 3 layers of paint on it, and it came down to almost bare plastic.

Try Simply Green, it works well if you can find it.

I second the recommendation for Simple Green. It's fairly safe and non-toxic to work with and it does a great job of removing paint while not hurting the plastic.
