Perhaps it was that I would handle them a lot. I'm more careful now.Well that's very strange.
Don't have too many modern MBs, but all the ones I have with those wheels are hanging in there just fine.
Including the Alfas.
Do you live in an area where it gets brutally hot and humid maybe???
Worse than "Earth"?
You mean like this?Do you display any? I notice all you posted there were in cases. Just wondering I know not everyone has the room to display.
YES....that will do it big time.Perhaps it was that I would handle them a lot. I'm more careful now.
So would that explain how my two Crack-ups and the Tomica have what looks like a coating on the bases, from oils from the previous owner?YES....that will do it big time.
The oils from your fingers are hard on plastic chrome foiled wheels and other parts.
Also, try not to touch the bases of your models that are not painted. You can easily mess up a nice box-fresh Lesney or vintage HW thatta way!
Great color combo on that Rolls Royce Yesteryear. I believe the box says 1973?
And what is that light blue and large scale car?
Sorta looks like it's constructed from a thick sheet of paper.
