Re: Cleaning Stained Travel Agency Models
Personally, for light dirt staining and dust, I first do a gentle wipe over with luke warm soapy water, taking care not to saturate the model. After carefully drying it, I then use a spray on wax furniture polish with a soft duster, the polish I use is called Pledge here in the U.K. For heavier staining I use Turtle Wax auto polish. They do a range of colour coded polishes here in the U.K. I use the white one for upper fuselages, and their standard polish for non white areas. I use a cocktail stick to clean along panel lines. Its a combination that's worked for me, the art of course is deciding how much cleaning/polishing it's wise to do on older rarer models. Sometimes I've found it a nerve racking experience with older models, that's for sure! I've never tried this method on metal models as I've never owned any. Hope that helps.
