Default Old Masking tape removal

I've got a 20 yr old P-51 with masking tape on canopy. The tape came off but the adhesive stayed. Rubbing alcohol eventually works. Is there anything faster or easier without attaching the clear canopy?

I've had great success using WD-40 for problems. Spray it on pretty heavy and let it soak for a few minutes. Clean up with windex or alcohol.

Thanks to all. I think I will try WD40 first since there is some on the bench. My wife has Skin So Soft. I'm sure that will be a big hit!
