Simple Green or any ammonia based window cleaner work just fine....soak for an hour or so; give the mini a quick scrub: & rinse. What a Face

do NOT use acetone on plastic models! it will damage them!

wound cleaning liquor works almost as well. soak for a day or two then scrub. break fluid also works. i have not tried simple green stuff, but i have heard it works well too.

As was stated above, Simple Green works wonders. Let the soak for a day or so, and grab an old toothbrush and scrub away the old paint. Windex should work as well.

We don't have SimpleGreen here, but we have Dettol, which works wonders. Smile
