  2. How about trying hot air from a hair dryer, heating the plastic up gently rather than a dunk in boiling water?

      I saw this from the corner of my eye and flinched.

       

      I did this with a hair dryer on  a brand new Hornby Hall body last week.  By the time I noticed the cab steps were looking "soft", it was too late - the cab itself had already absorbed too much heat and even after the dryer was off, it continued to morph.

       

      I would stick well clear of hot air hair dryers or heat guns.
