Len chances are that the original paint on your scale is baked enamel and you can strip down to it without haming it with canned stripper if you work with it and remove the black paint as soon as it begins to soften. The graphics are another problem entirely as many of these were painted over the base coat or were stencils. It is difficult if not impossible to remove overpaint and not take the graphics with it. Some stencils have been reproduced and you may be able to find replacements for them, but the scale will loose some of its value. Hope this helps you.
