[WWI] Stripping Paint

I was told to use brake fluid. I've tried it, it works, but you can't leave the plastic soaking too long. From what I remember the fumes aren't too bad either.

                I've always just used a spray of Easy-Off oven cleaner.  I've never tried it on resin, but it takes paint off plastic without harming anything.  You have to be careful with that stuff, though.  Even if it's advertised as "fume-free" you need to use it OUTSIDE and with rubber gloves.  Spray on a foaming coat and leave it outside on some newspaper for about half an hour, then wash under cold water in a sink.  Works like a charm!
