sand blasting paint

That is how paint is removed from the B2 bomber.  I have done this on many occasions.  Rather than sand though, we use a wheat based media that looks almost like cream of wheat.  This method is very effective but you must be very careful because if you hold the nozzle in any one place too long, you are into the plies.

Soda and water blaster works much better. Check out previous posts on the subject.

Daffy,

There is a post in the Hangar Flying archives under "Paint Removel"  that addresses this particular issue.  Alot of information and personal knowledge.  

There is also a website listed:
