If it flies like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it must be zinc rot... Welcome to our world of diecast airliner collecting, and it seems you were bit by zinc rot early in the hobby. Add this one to the list... Sometimes zinc rot stabilizes and slows down, but usually the process continues and consumes your model. I've got some Magic models that obviously have symptoms, but seem to be stable and worth keeping. Zinc rot is a bummer, and everyone gets bit at some point. Keep 'em flying, Doug
