NO! Cleaning brushes with model paint thinner is a huge waste of money.
Buy industrial/household laquer thinner by the buckets for brush cleaning.
Save your brandname thinner for mixing paint and airbrushing.

Gundam Color paint is completely insoluble in water and acrylic thinner.
Use laquer thinner.

If the brush is dried solid, you can soak it in thinner for an hour or so.
But a better solution is perhaps throw it away and remember to be more
careful next time.

There is pretty much only one practical solution, laquer thinner. And
it's bad for you brain if you sniff a lot of it. But just keep a window
open and you are fine. Less harmful than a puff of cigarette or a short
stroll in the city.
