Well with the temporary removal of bitz orders i am starting to recycle some of my metal bitz. However, I am not sure what to use when striping the models.

So, what stuff do you use to strip your netal bitz/models?

"...temporary removal of bitz orders..."

From what I understand bitz oders are closed for good.

I've heard people say a product called Simple Green works wonders when stripping minis, though I've havn't used it personally.

What they are doing now is closing bitz so they can decide which to continue production and which to halt. Once this is complete, they will make the bitz orders like they used to be. I'm sure of this because I asked the GW regional Manager for the Bay Area.

Oh and thanks.

I'm a fan of brake fluid and/or motor oil. There's a guy who pretty much puts drywall on his models... and brake fluid was able to take it off. It's a wee bit strong, but it does work on pewter.

If you're more scientifically inclined, mixing household chemicals can be fun in a well-ventilated area. In the absence of Simple Green or the like, Drain-O and grout cleaner (roughly a 75/25 mix) will do the trick. It also might create a toxic cloud, depending on what grout cleaner you use, so do it outside if you try that.

Regular nail polish remover for plastic, acryllic nail polish remover for metal. Works just as well as anything else you might try and it is far cheaper.
