Hello,

Is there a safe way to remove paint (probably enamel) from a 1960's era plastic model without damaging the plastic? I've heard people say that Simple Green will work if the part is soaked in it while others have said that the use of brake fluid works but care needs to be exercised so that the brake fluid doesn't remain on the plastic too long. Any opinions? A safe and Happy Holiday to all!

Plastic modelling forums suggest that Easy Off oven cleaner work well. Very Happy

That's my son's favorite method, but the steering wheel mechanism from one of my plastic models is soaking in brake fluid right now. Just don't use synthetic.
