Default Removing Printed On Windows?

Hello everyone,
I'm fairly new to the world of diecast aircraft, and one thing I'm interested in doing is trying to converting a couple of blank JC Wings passenger 747's into cargo aircraft.
(Probably these right here: )
The biggest issue I see is trying to remove the windows without majorly damaging the white undercoat.
I assume that the windows are printed on a different layer than the white, and it's not done all at the same time?
Does anyone have any experience with removing windows, with minimal damage to the white paint underneath?
Thanks for any help or knowledge you can give me!

Hi Philphil,

non acetone nail polish remover does the trick.

Use cotton swabs and do it gently...

Works great for me.

I use acetone carefully applied with cotton buds. If used sparingly you should retain the gloss finish on the white base coat.

I agree with ams026 and modelmanGB, it is very easy.

If in some areas, the cotton swab is too big, use a fine brush and take your time.
