If you don't want to use brake fluid (and believe me, it takes a long time to soak off paint) use Scale Coat paint remover. It will not damage the plastic and washes off with water. It is reusable too. It comes in pint bottles and is kind of expensive, like $10.95 or so, but it works like a charm. Try to avoid Scale Coat II paint as it doesn't work as well as regular Scale Coat. And as to finish for decals, forget about putting them onto a shiny surface. Just apply the decals with a lot of water under them, soak out the water when they are where you want them, and then use Solvaset from Walthers to set the decals. Then if you want to, overcoat the whole thing. I don't like to mix brands of paint, try to stay with the same brand when doing a model, that way you don't run into the trouble you have. Good Luck with your project.
