Thanks Kim. Was going to post a topic at some point on the subject of yellowing. A few on my older scout troopers are suffering from this - is it just put down to sun exposure/time? Has no one found a cure yet or are the effects perminent?
I've had a large army of stormtroopers for a long time now and they've gradually gotten a little yellower as time has gone by. My Imperial shuttle too has felt the onset of yellowing. I've kept them on display out of direct sunlight for the best part of 10 years now, so I put it down to age
. It's good this has been raised as a topic - I might try out some restoritive measures and see if it helps.

I've encounted this, and its really annoying. I'll try CF's Meths idea on a yellowed peice, if it works minifigs may be next...
I'm yet to find a cure. But gees, it's annoying... along with brittle/ripping stickers
I hear that! The stickers on my (original) RGS spontaneously started flaking off leaving behind that sticky residue... was so annoyning! Fortunately my wife found this solution that removes 'sticky-stuff'; after stripping all the stickers and cleaning it with the solution my RGS looked sweet again
