Hey guys. I was in a flood prone area during hurricane season this year and put a lot of my things inside ziplock bags.
Just took out a piece I had yesterday (a hand painted bakelite/plastic composite plan recognition model) and it smelled strongly of vinegar or possibly some other chemical smell.
Is there any reason to be concerned? Doesn't look like there is any damage, but I'm concerned keeping this piece mostly air tight might have caused damage. It was a very strong smell when opening the bag.
Thinking maybe just the plastic used or the paint had a smell that I didn't realize before until it was cooped up.
Just curious if you guys have any thoughts. Thanks!
