To all modelers,
I often wondering how to clean the PT boat models, or any other models, without a glass case
for protection. Any ideas?

Long before Stan started building the cases for all of my models, I used to buy some of that air in a can, that they use to clean the keyboards of your computer. Also, you can use a fine paint brush. In any event, most model's without a case are a real pain to keep clean.............

Orally, I blow on them or use a very soft wide paint brush.
Have heard you can rinse under water? HTH---John

Victor, what are you dealing with? Do you have an old model you're trying to clean?
Dave

PS. Ignore Carl. I wouldn't recommend that. :-)

Oh, Carl's way works. Just be sure to clean your lint trap.
