Cleaning / washing aircraft models?

Hi all,



I just received one of my much anticipaed models (AV400 A350) but unfortunately, it appears that there's a bit of dust / and prints/grease on the wings, and I'll need to glue the engines as they've come off. Supposed to be new.



It hasn't made me feel too happy, but considering the model is something I wanted and I could fix the engines back - I wanted to ask if there is a way to clean the model (just in case?) - would cool soapy water work?

- now added a pic and find the sort of marks on the wings on the underside and other parts of the aircraft.

Any tips?

I would avoid soapy water. Use a damp cloth maybe.

Soapy water contains salt which can damage paint which is why you shouldn’t use it to wash your car either.
