Just got a reply from Revell!

My email:

Dear madam, sir,

I have two hobbies I'm very fond of. One: making plastic models and
two: aquariums.
Now it would be great to combine these two in a single project.
Long story short, I want to put a Revell model (unpainted and glued
with aquarium safe glue) in a saltwater aquarium.

My question to you is the following: will it be safe for living
things? Or will the plastic leach out toxic substances (or any
substances at all)?


Kind regards,

My name

My name,



Please see information below from our Product manager.



The plastic will not leach. But our tires (molded in PVC) will leach. They are not safe

I like the plane idea. I went another route with my recent nano 16g build - lego submarine with scuba minifigs -

Looking forward to the model coming to live as an artificial reef.

If you could go to walmart and get a die-cast airplane model that would be cool so you wouldn't have to worry about the plastic but i don't know if it could leak heavy metals into the tank.

Okay so I was like in Hawaii and I like went in a submarine and like we saw this like shipwreck and there were like sharks and there was like a sea turtle. It was pretty fly. It would look really cool if you could pull this off.

Looks sweet man! Very cool.
I happen to like lego too! ^^

There's quite a few fun ideas that come to mind that one can pull of with models.
