Just received S3 Pilot and the tender has smudges that look like finger prints on the "clear coat" that I understand is applied to help protect the units.
Also a couple of areas that the clear coat was applied too thick and is cracking. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this and if some solvent could used.
Also, the smoke output is very poor; I understand that the engine was stored for a long time and the "wick" has most likely dried out so I added a few drops at a time to try to bring it back slowly. now, it will produce good smoke only after I puff some air into the stack. However, it will only smoke for a short time. I really don't want to add much more smoke fluid as I have already put in near 20 drops.
Any advice about these issues would be greatly appreciated.
