I use 91% isopropyl alcohol to remove paint from engines and cars, There was only one engine I couldn't remove paint from, and old Atlas model from the 70's. It will usually start to remove the paint within 2 hrs.

I'm late to this thread but why is it necessary to strip the paint from the model. I can see removing lettering and logos but why can't you just paint over the original paint?

I have most of the paint removed between brake fluid and AK47 stripper. I have been cleaning tight spots with a small scraper.

My paint stripper from Scale Coat is on the way, so that will be the last step in getting rid of the last bits of stubborn paint..
