Those other strippers will eat up your hands if you don't use gloves. Try 90% Rubbing alcohol works great too according to Gregg. Plus, it won’t hurt plastic or your hands.
That's what I use if possible for prepainted plastic models, but for diecast w/o any plastic the heavy-duty stuff is incredible. And I like to wear gloves even w/the strong alcohol. The alcohol is also flammable. I have a stripping tub of 99% alcohol that I bought in a gallon jug from the grocery store.
I found my pics of the Auto Strip process in my Fotki:
This is what a diecast body looked like after a few minutes with Auto Strip:
This is what it looked like 20 mins. after I started:
Has anyone tried dunking a diecast in the alcohol bath? Does it really take that paint off as nicely as a prepainted plastic kit sheds it's paint?? I always assumed the diecast models were painted in a much stronger paint. Maybe this will be a good experiment from my graveyard of $6 Maisto models who sacrificed wheels/tires and LHD dashboards for their plastic brethren :wink:
