WD-40 clears haze

Try this quick tip
RELATED TOPICS: PAINTING
Are you having a problem with Testors Dullcote becoming hazy with time? Spray WD-40 into a container, apply it to the cloudy Dullcote with a flat brush, remove the excess, let dry, and voila — haze gone!

Three years ago, I tried this trick on my 30-year-old Testors 1/48 scale SR-71; now it is better than new.

The WD-40 toned down the flatness of the finish, making it look even more realistic. The decals were not adversely affected, either.

I find this works on all schemes and on the entire model. And it cleans off shelf grime to boot.
