G'day,

I think it's too early to say how powdery rot will affect aluminium models... It could be just one model affected because it wasn't properly cleaned afer coming out of the mould and became contaminated or it could be a whole batch due to the aluminium being contaminated in the first instance. From a personal point of view, I've seen several models contaminated due to improper cleaning of the fresh casting and the surface paint then flaking off (I have a Gemini Qantas A380 so affected) tho I bought a second model of the same plane and that's fine...

Lou
