Restoration time

Unread postby wannsee » Wed Aug 17, 2011 3:17 pm

Both the Valiant and DH 110 are in need of TLC. Yes I will get round to it soon. Who needs the new Airfix offering when you have this beauty :D I also have a Vulcan and the previous owner filled the wheel wells in with putty...... I am working on a solution.....

Martin,
Do you mean the sort of putty you use to seal a glass window in its frame?
The active ingredient is linseed oil so if you soak the parts in that it should eventually soften the putty to the point that you can wash it out with white spirit or similar.
test this on a disposable part first just in case it reacts with the plastic.

David.
If it is broken then fix it but if it isn't- LEAVE IT ALONE!
