I use aircraft stripper for my diecast. Just don’t get it on any plastic.

Ditto. Just use heavy rubber gloves and have a bucket of water standing by. It'll take about 15 minutes start to finish. Use an etching primer when repainting.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Oven cleaner will work.

DON'T use the purple pond; it might attack the metal.

Easy off does quite the job on most paints, but I've found it takes a couple days on most diecasts, but it is a viable alternative. Less caustic too.

Does Purple Cleaner work on diecast? I have a tank of that, that I use to strip plastic kits but I've been hesitant to try it on metal just in case.
