91% Rubbing Alcohol worked Very Quick for me.

4 days in Wesley's did nothing. Under 4 hours in the Alcohol had the crystal clear again!!

I don't know what Well uses to 'paint/tint' the lenses on their 1/18's so I don't know
Can't hurt to try though
And with Alcohol, you don't need to worry about wearing rubber/latex gloves

I successfully used the 91% isopropyl and was pleased with the results; in less than an hour the lens was as clear as ever, no hint of red at all...worked much better than I expected.

Thanks for the tip.
