As an added bonus you were fairly local to Bournemouth back in the day weren’t you?
Yes I grew up in Poole which is just a few miles away, so it is cool to have the sticker on there!

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

Big thanks to welshwookie for sending me some more tools in the post! I had another go this morning and 99% of it is now gone :) There is now a lift in the bottom right corner of the bubble and a little wear on the card where I was rubbing (in hindsight should have put some masking tape on it, whoop...

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

I think I've got that version of 8D8 so was going to see if you were interested in it so you could send the other one back for a refund without worrying about getting a replacement. But what you've done there looks great! I'm in no rush to move my stuff on though, so will leave it a while; if you w...

Re: Sad news regarding forum member Declan McCafferty AKA chipsteak

I received the below message and photo from Declan's brother Kieran: Edd, I thought this may be of interest to your members. It was chipsteaks funeral yesterday. And we buried him in a star wars coffin. Here is a screenshot from the service. Finished of his eulogy by saying the star wars box was in ...

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

Well attempt 1 has been pretty successful, before and after below :) I bought one of these from eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333735464167 There was a small gap at the bottom of the bubble where the seal was weak, so I popped it in there and with much manouevering and patience managed to get most...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nothing wrong with that, they taped the accessories in before attaching the bubbles so it's inevitble some were not perfect. I have a carded ROTG IG-88 with a piece of hair in the tape!

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

Well it's made no visible difference. It might have killed it, no way of knowing really, so looks like plan B is needed.

If you want some fine wires Edd, my wife has a few different guage ones in work ?
Thanks for the offer, I was thinking that I might try a really thin pipe cleaner or something. Needs to be thin enough to get in the bubble, but also have some kind of brush or bristles to remove the mould.

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

The seller offered me a decent partial refund, so I accepted it and will have another go. I used some of the money to buy a UV-C lamp from Amazon, it was only £20 and after reading up on it apparently UV-C is the only light that kills mould, and there is only a tiny % of it in sunlight. For £20 it's...
