Video tutorial: How to strip paint from scale models - remove enamel or acrylic paint

My latest video is up, dealing with how to safely and easily strip paint from scale models. I'm never much of a fan of stripping paint: it means I've wasted effort and time on the unsuccessful original coat. But sometimes it's unavoidable, and like I mentioned in an earlier post about the Mustang's propellor spinner, if something is bothering you it's better to deal with it than leave it and not be able to see past that flaw every time you look at the completed model.

In that situation, you need to know how to strip paint, effectively and without hurting either the underlying plastic or (more importantly) yourself.

This video shows you how to remove both acrylic paint and enamel paint from your scale models. All you need are some common household items you probably already have at home. If not, you can get them at your local supermarket for a couple of bucks. Nothing expensive or exotic is required.
