I received a murcielago by AUTOart for a gift a wile back, but when I opened it up it had bad sticker residue on the doors from AAs stickers. What is the best way to take this stuff off? I have wiped and wiped, and even used a little dish detergent ( :shock: ). I need help!

Goo Be Gone or Goo Gone and a q-tip work great, You can pick it up in any discount store, alot of times at the checkout.

I find by using the sticker itself you can remove the remaining goop by pulling it off gradually by pressing down and removing the sticker lots of times, until it is gone, then use a soft cloth (I use a chamois one) to polish up the area and remove the last bit of sticker residue. A carefully applied fingernail works too for very subborn bits!!!

I think the best way to keep your models clean is put them in sealed glass/perspex display cases. After years of dusting my models and seeing the windows get dull and scratched I invested in some clear plastic cases which protect the models just like the box does.

They aren't cheap (especially if you have lots of models ), but they help show the models off and stop them being ruined by dust and dusting.

So, as soon as I buy a new model, it stays in the box until I get a case for it. It also looks cool because rather than having them stuck on a shelf, I mount them at various points on the wall and they look the nuts and it makes viewing and showing them much easier. The amount of times other models got dropped by butter fingered friends makes the cases well worth the investment.
