    Hi, I need to completely remove the paint from a model that was painted and coated with acrylics a couple of months ago. Anyone knows what's the best and easiest way to achieve this?


    Thanks

    Dettol does the job. Soak for 20-30 min and brush with toothbrush

    I've used bleach to good effect in the past. I believe oven cleaner is also a popular choice.

    Yeah! Can you bring your coat next time so we can make absolutely sure you don't leave without it!
