For both paint and chrome, I keep one of those disposable Glad plastic sealable containers about half full with Castrol Super Clean. I drop painted or chromed pieces in and let them sit. Takes everything right off, and then a water rince (with sometimes a toothrbush scrub for corners and stuff) and they come out perfect. And as a benefit, I don't have to worry about the fumes or any dangerous chemicals getting spilled or worse. You can strain it and keep using it, too. Works very well.

Good Grief we're still on the paint and chrome stripping?  This thread is actually about my model build, not the techniques for stripping paint or chrome.  :rolleyes:

Please don't misunderstand, I welcome comments and advise, it's just that the paint stripping was discussed back in April of last year and the build has moved on well past that point.
