    Stevan, I think you could have easily posted this in the Aircraft section Laughing

    Welcome to the crazy accidents our new found friend cheers

    I remember way back then when I used to make aircraft (before I became a traitor according to Marco) Itried to speed up the drying time of the paint around my Jaguar 1/48th by holding and placing the model close to the bathroom wall heater, and soon found the canopy plus the side fuselage in a nice wavey shape Sad beyound repair, so I just smashed it against the floor Sad

    But yours can be fixed for sure Suspect

    I know melting! Shocked

    I once had a Pegaso white metal figure and I had to do something with the arm holding the pistol..... I don't remember what it was...... but I put it in the home oven on very low heat!!!!! the arm on one side was all flat!!!!

    Regards
