Will purple power strip them? If not can anyone tell what will? Google search led me to aircraft stripper, which would melt the plastic...

If they are lacquer based then not really well, you can use 91% alcohol to strip lacquer based paints

Purple Power will do the trick. You'll have to leave overnight and then get a toothbrush and push the paint off.

I use auto-air all the time and love it.

Were you spraying it onto a primed surface? I use Wicked Colors a lot and it only works over a primer. On bare plastic it'll bead up and run all over.

This stuff is pretty powerful, it strips Tamiya paint like nothing else, I am sure it will work on that paint. Go to WalMart and get it, buy 2 of them, pour the contents on a small container just big enough to accomodate the body in, leave it in for a few hours or a day and then just use a toothbrush to remove all the left on stuff in the small crevices and that's it. Please make sure to wear gloves, don't even think about touching this stuff. Yes, it's very safe on plastic.....

I've never tried it on glue, only on paint but probably of you leave it longer, it might just help....
