    Paint removal

    There is a Revell (brand) paint remover which works perfect on plastic (made for that), but a faster way is to use oven cleaner, you'll need to put the model in a ziploc bag, spray it with the cleaner and close the bag. Let it work for at least 30 minutes (sometimes can be loooooonger) and wash it.
