I second Don's Simple green! By a jug or two. It works BETTER on metal. As a tip, by some fine or super fins steel wool for cleaning up the metal models. They'll look almost better then brand new. I've taken to leaving some of the new metal models I buy in Simple green as it absolutely cleans of any mould residue. It's wonderful stuff!

I used pine sol on metal models in the past. Worked... ok... but all those models kind of have a greasy feel to them. Simple green is AMAZING. I hate that goddamn smell though!

Also on a side note, I've had the same tub of simple green in the garage for over a year. Easily I've stripped 200 mini's. It's still going strong. Apparently you can run it through a coffee filter but I haven't even bothered with that.

Jeez Scott, I wish I would have known that before trying to fish 25 tiny metal Daemonettes, and arms, out of the paint remover gelatin. That stuff is strong! I think I was hallucinating after awhile.

Also, I have never reused the simple green, but it just got the Radom thumbs up, so I'm going to change my habits.

Sorry I forgot about this, but HOLY CRAP! Scott was right, the simple green works fantastic on metal models. even better then the caustic, smelly paint remover that makes me see Smurfs fighting Gary Coleman.

I'm actually pissed that I didn't know this before, as recently I have been fighting with stripping the tiniest of pieces that are metal daemonette arms. I dunked a Dragon Ogre, and since I forgot about it I suppose it was dunked for about 3-4 days. The paint actually peeled off when I used a toothbrush and actually came out of the grooves like a 'skin'. Brought a tear to my eye. I then drank the solution in celebration!

How has it worked for you, Nathan?

I've picked up a jug and I have the high elves now but I have yet to try it. I'll probably hold off until later in the month as I have many other projects to complete before I start on the high elves. How smelly is it? Does it freeze? Do I need to wait until spring to put it out in my unheated garage or can it sit somewhere in the house?

Don't let it freeze.

It's non toxic, so it's safe in the house. Though I HATE the way it smells.
