Hopefully you are not using DOT 5 brake fluid since it is silicone based.

You might have luck with something of these links -

I recently had some success with Polyscale Lift-off, which is no longer available but there seems to be a Testors Lift-off, so I imagine it's the same stuff.
The trick is to follow directions. Apply liberally and wait until the paint gets crinkly - then wash it off with a brush. Don't leave it on too long and don't immerse the item in the stuff.
