Will Purple Power affect model glue?

I'm working on the 1/537 Reliant at the moment. However, I'm not happy with the paint job I've put down. I've done research into paint removers for enamel paint and decided that Purple Power will be what I use. My question is, will it harm the glue? I've used Tenax 7R by the way.

I've learned an important lesson. I used CA because at the time, it held fast and strong. Luckily I have some plastic weld to fix these. I just had no idea that this would happen.

No I read it. I made this one because I was looking for pros and cons of both materials. I should've made that more clear.

Major differences between resin and styrene

I looked through the pinned posts but I couldn't find what I was looking for. What are the pros and cons of resin models versus styrene? I've only ever worked with styrene so that's what I'm familiar with. I'm thinking about ordering some resin models from StarCraft. What pieces of advice would you ...
