A Cautionary Tale
Bought an old Italaerei kit at our club night this evening all still sealed in the original bag. When I got it home I took it out of the box to really see what I’d got and noticed that some of the parts appeared damaged! Further investigation showed that where the vinyl tyres were in contact with the styrene, the styrene had softened and distorted. I can only imagine that fumes given off by the vinyl has somehow caused this problem. So, if you have any old kits in your stash with vinyl tyres I’d check they’re not in with the styrene!
