Important Points regarding Model Care.
- We recommend you remove any stickers used to hold down bonnets etc placed by the manufacturer to protect the model in shipping in case they effect the finish over time
- We strongly suggest you do not wrap models in tissues. Tissues can often stick to paintwork and decals over time and can prove to be very difficult to remove. This is a particularly important consideration with respect to hand built models or models using water lift transfers.
- You should pay attention to the tyres of models stored out of their packaging, especially models stored on glass shelves. Models with softer tyres (especially hand built models) are susceptible to getting flat spots which are difficult to impossible to repair. There are purpose made products that support the models but you would probably find a piece of corrugated cardboard cut to size to rase the wheels off the ground just as good without being apparent within your display case.
