Try lacquer thinner or acetone. Works great on monocote and Ultracote....

I use acetone on my hobby king covering and it works perfectly. Get enough on a rag and it comes right off. I have never had it affect the adhesion of the seams either.

MonoKote Trim Solvent works well. But use a very small amount on a rag or paper towel.

Gunwash may be another to try.
