Always use 2 people to lift the model in and out of the travel case
How to display/store your model
Avoid storing near a window. A model will deteriorate over time if it is exposed to the sun.
How to remove fingerprints from the model's cover
Models with covers need to be cleaned periodically. Using a microfiber cloth with a plastic cleaner such as Brillianize will clean and polish at the same time. DO NOT use glass cleaner or paper towels. The ammonia will cause cloudiness and the paper towels could scratch the surfaces.
How to dust your model
Use compressed air to remove any dust that may have settled on your model. Please be mindful of using it around trees or grass fixtures in case they shed.
How to package your model
Use household Saran wrap to wrap the cover to the base for travel. Plastic wrapping will also protect the cover from scratches and finger prints while you are setting up for you display. DO NOT use packing shrink wrap. Chemicals in this type of wrap are not compatible with the acrylic cover and could leave permanent marks.
How to unwrap your model - no knives please
The last thing you want is to nick the shiny acrylic finish of your model as you are unwrapping it. We recommend that you DO NOT use anything sharp like a knife.
