This weekend I received these three new 1:200s:
– the Uzbekistan Airways B767-300, on which I flew in 2007 from Tashkent, Uzbekistan to Moscow Domodedovo, with amazing service and cuisine. The model is by Skymarks.
– the Eva Air B747-400 in Koala Festival livery; I’m not quite sure what the Koala Festival was, but Koala is one of my nicknames. It’s a second hand Skymarks/Risesoon model, with the fan blades insert missing from one of the engines:
— DO YOU KNOW WHERE I COULD GET A SPARE 747 ENGINE or fan blades insert from for this model? I don’t know why, but three out of four of my 747s are annoyingly 1:250, but this week I should be getting a proper 1:200 744, also in special livery.
– I have no connection at all with IcelandAir, except that I liked the Aurora Borealis livery, and as a travel agent, used to enjoy selling flights to the States via Iceland with a few days stopover. It’s a B757-200 by Herpa: extremely difficult to get the wings and horizontal stabilizer to snap into the fuselage as the fit is very tight, and I’m afraid of pushing them too much for fear of snapping one.
Anyway up till now I’ve mainly dusted them with a dustpan brush, which is probably not ideal. I’m looking forward to receiving my new special livery 744 this week, as well as an two sexy V-bombers, and am thinking of getting something like a camera brush. What do you use to keep yours clean and dust free? Thanks.

My wife donated a spare, unused soft make-up brush to my cause. It works a treat. Watch those small aerials, though. For the record, mine is branded 'Annabelle A-88'. The brush also retracts into its plastic handle. Perfect.

Ditto, I also use a soft makeup brush to keep the dust off. But, when I take my models out of the box for the first time, I gently wipe them down with a little Windex on a soft microfiber cloth to get off any oils or film that may be on them.
