yellowing plastic

Post by gustie »

just a quick link if anyone is still left wondering why stuff yellows

its funny - i was in a collectors shop the other week, the owner had about 7 stormtroopers that looked like they had a 100 a day fag habit lol, he said if you kept them under a flouresent light for about a year the yellowing will reverse - you wont notice it as its very gradual. LOL

seems his fix is actually the cause..
