All:

I bought a Model Power kit, the "Fresh Farms Dairy", which is Model Power's version of Pola (330)905.

I figured it was cast in white (the Pola version is a tan/brown) but Model Power actually took the time and effort to paint the brown walls sterile white?!?!?

I tried painting brown over the walls (no dice) and while I can remove the brown paint with ease, I cannot get anything to go after the white. I even got agressive and used some MEK, which will attack the plastic, and it barely put a dent in it.

I have used Simple Green on some models in the past, but not sure if this is model paint or something more? Xylene is the next on the agenda, and I tried IPA...

No, I used what was supposed to be a primer free paint (Fusion) but it did not like the white paint.....

Live and learn I guess!

Yes, did wonders on Piko unpainted plastic, but does not like a layer of paint obviously!
