Re: Is cooking grease a threat to model collection
That’s an interesting question. I wouldn’t be surprised if over a long period there could be an accumulation of many different tiny droplets of a few different components. The water resistance on the plexi may be residual polish of some kind. Trouble is, with the models being in such close proximity to the kitchen, a simple curtain won’t totally stop the migration of almost microscopic droplets, neither would a solid door either, unless it was hermetically sealed with a spacecraft type of airlock! I’m lucky I guess in that my models are contained within two rooms on the second floor of my home, but even so, odours still make it into my ‘play rooms’, so I guess those damn droplets make it into the rooms too. Covering the models with thin cotton sheets might help. In the 46 years of my collecting these things, when needed I’ve always sparingly used Turtle Wax auto polish on a very soft cloth, which I guess puts a protective coat on the model, it’s
never let me down yet. This is just my own opinion on your question, nothing more. Other members here will, I’m sure, have more opinions and possible solutions.
