I have just bought a vintage land speeder of ebay , and I noticed that windscreen has yellowing. Does anyone know how I could whiten it?

You can use hydrogen peroxide, but it won't last. The reason plastic goes yellow is because of the fire retardant in it. Bleaching it may temporarily improve it, but it will go yellow again. I would advise against it.

Cheers mate I will leave well alone, I think it adds to the character anyway.
