Consider bead blasting, I did that to some MTH boxcars and it worked very well.  Of course, if you use fine sandpaper to knock down any edges of lettering, you could just leave the old paint on it.

That’s what I do with 99% of my repaints...I leave the old paint right on there, unless there is an adhesion problem from the get go.....I avoid strippers, and chemicals at all costs on plastic bodies.....scuff with fine, and I do mean fine paper to blend out lines and multiple colors, scuff the entire piece with fine scotchbrite, then wash, seal and coat....and you get paint work that looks like this: E8135966-FC17-4239-BD97-23774CD402E3
