Looking good Martin - it's so great you found one of those big ones - interesting to know they're still made.

How's the best way to strip the original paint? I want to re-paint my Papo Black Bear, to the brown color phase.

I think you can't strip it, the surface is very rough. The only way is to paint over it...

When I repaint a model I sand it down lightly, so that the new paint sticks better - then I paint the model completely white, usually a couple of coats so that the old paintwork doesn't show through at all. Then start with the main colour of your model, in your case brown.
