Default Help! Finishing Question

I have had several issues with my Episode (i.e. dumb thumbs) that has resulted in the fuselage looking like it has leprosy. I decided this would be a good chance to refinish it and make it look different from the usual finish. Hence, my question. Does anybody know how to strip the finish chemically without using something that attacks the epoxy resin of the structure? I tried sanding, denatured alcohol, and acetone . All work to some degree, but require quite a bit of effort and real slow progress. Need to get moving as this will be my backup plane this year and the season starts in about four weeks or so.

Thanks in advance for any help you have to offer.
