Reversing yellowing.


Recommended Posts

Brittle plastic is more of a concern to me than yellowing.  I won't fully transform my HCM VF-1J anymore because of it.  I've seen what happens to Jetfires from that era.

I've had to repair Jetfires from that era, and sometimes it's so bad, you're better off replacing parts than trying to glue them.

Man, I should start figuring out how to 3D print replacement parts for classic toys.  Need to learn how to translate measurements into a 3D app more accurately.  A few of my buddies have been doing that with pretty decent success.
