Re: Taking care of model airplanes

I have a cabinet that closes tight stopping dust from entering reducing the need for dusting and also lowering the chance of accidental damages. hope this helps

Re: Taking care of model airplanes

Also avoid direct sunlight as it may cause yellowing and/or zink rot!

Zinc rot is not caused by direct sunlight. It is caused by zinc contamination with for example lead or antyhing else. It's the same situation like with water - if it's contaminated it's not good to drink. If zinc is contaminated it's not good to make moulds with.
