    is the fuselage fiberglass (epoxy or resin) or balsa or built-up and covered?
    what type paint? (epoxy, latex, acrylic, dope ) ?

    I suppose my next question would be 'why?'

    Try automotive brake fluid on a sample piece.

    It used to work on HO scale freight car bodies, so it should take paint off RC car bodies too.

    If it's a clear shell that's painted on the inside, it might be Lexan plastic? I have used Castrol Super Clean, or Purple Power spray cleaner...
    It doesn't always work, but most times it does...(you gotta really spray it on heavy and let it soak for a while...then scrub w/ an old tooth brush, or similar...might take several applications)
