How to stop model wood ships from drying out and cracking?
I inherited 9 model wooden ships that my dad spent hundreds of hours making. I had them moved from Coastal GA (hot and humid) Central AZ (Dry and colder). The wood seems to be drying out and starting to crack! I was told to use turtle wax, but too many horror stories. It’s very difficult to put a wax on and then rub or buff it off as there are many small and tight areas & everything is very delicate! Once I fix this then they’re going into glass cabinets! Also, sny suggestions how to best maintain them?
