I have found that using Gloss coats prior to decaling, and sealing with a 
clear coat will greatly delay the effects of TIME! That being said, glue 
will deteriorate, eventually. Perhaps Super Glue or Epoxy reinforced joimts 
will last longer. My Old Models were never put to the Test of Time. I 
scrapped many as my skills grew, plus multiple moves over the years etc. I 
would repair what I could and go on from there!

Careful review of the Gallery will reveal RC, Stick and Tissue , Rubber 
Powered etc. This group is Diverse if nothing else!
