I've never done it myself but I did a good search and this seems to be like a good bet

"Simple Green" is fantastic. I use it all the time. On plastic models just use a toothbrush under some running water and with metal I do the same then use a little fine steel wool to finish up. Works awesome. I soak my models for at least a day, but usually a week.

how bad of an idea is paint remover? I've got a 3rd ed zoanthrope that was painted with something but it won't come off...

paint stripping stuff melts plastic, don't touch that stuff.

Easy Off Oven Cleaner works really well for stuff that's not coming off with simple green, it won't wreck the model and it only needs to soak for about 6 hours, and then just tooth brush it under the tap.

put it in simple green for 1.5 days then use an old tooth brush to get the paint off

Co-op or probably any hardware store.

Superstore usually has it... If not try some Pine-Sol.
