I have several Dragon Wings models, there is some dust on them so i would like to clean them, shall i use a soft cloth with window cleaning liquid? A soft cloth with water? what about using photo lens cleaning liquid?

Thank you!

If they are simply just dusty, a soft damp cloth will work fine.

A dry (clean) makeup brush works well, especialy for the nooks and crannies.

When in doubt, one B pump off

Small compressed air cans are good for cleaning the hard-to-get-at places like engine nacelles, etc.

I would stay away from compressed air. Dragon and Herpa Wings are very fragial and you can blow off landing gear and engines very easly. I blew off the left main of a EAL A300 and I didn't find it till 6 months later, On the other side of the room I thought it went. (12ft away)
