I have bought some used figures and I need to remove the old paint. Anyone out there with a handy dandy way to remove old enamel paint?
thank you for the help

Glass jar, brake fluid, immerse figures, leave for a couple of days, rinse figure under running water, discard (carefully) the residue.

Depending on what the minis are made of….
Metal figs – acetone
plastic or resin figs – Super Clean (formerly Castrol Super Clean)
