Does any one know of a supplier who can ship this to the UK?

I've dropped a cod with a model and want to start again.

I've used the CSC and the PP and both work. you may need to let it soak a few days.... and scrub with an old toothbrush...... but it gets it off.

Matt

Thanks for the advise.

Seem to have trouble getting any of those this side of the pond. I googled Purple Power, and apparently that is the name of a powerful strand of canabis. This would not help remove the paint from my model at all. I'm gonna give some bog standard oven cleaner a try.

Well, i've scrubbed with my toothbrush, and most of the paint is off - needs a second coat in areas, and the panel lines need some work, but all in all it's looking like the oven cleaner has done the job.

Thanks All

I would not say ignorant - it has two meanings.

1 - Make a mistake
2 - FUBAR.

Sorry for using UK slag :-)
