 I have models built in the late 70s thta have endured quite well the time,
but the places where the plastic cement was exposed to the air, the bond has
weakened and some parts are loose. This happened specially to aircraft kits,
I have less troubles with figures.
Related to this, i have a couple of very old unassembled kits I bought or
acquired recently that have styrene plastic become brittle and "glasslike"
so great care must be taken when building them.
