I was looking at your -huge- collections in the Photos of your Technic collection / setup thread and I was wondering how do your sets endure the years on display? I no longer have any Technic on display as recently I recycled my quite dusty Technic and put back most of my Star Wars back on display after a couple years on storage -most of it stored built-. There is some serious washing to be done, currently my Death Star parts are drying over the moderate heat of the aquarium lights. Shuttle, Millenium Falcon and Imperial Star Destroyer still in parts waiting for a wash. ISD gathered some serious dust after beign on display for more than a decade and Rebel blockade runner is not only dusty, stickers and rubber bands desintegrated. Decoloration does not seem to be a problem thougth. The Technic beams structure of ISD is somehow defective. Over the years the beams proved to be unable to support the weight and those in the front are bent. I did nto find any problems with my Technic sets besides dust, but I do not apply stickers on those, Mindstorms cables on the other hand were rotten and the copper exposed. So what about your sets?
