I've been reading these forums a long time and this is my first time posting. I own the Bandai Apollo 11 set and the Endeavour set. As a college student and NASA intern, these are my prized possessions!
I've been told to beware of handling and placement of the models because they could age poorly and yellow overtime. Besides keeping them away from fluorescent lights and direct sunlight, are there other preventative methods you recommend? How do you folks manage this?
I like having them on my desk and don't want to stash them away in the dark. Any and all insight on yellowing welcome.

Excellent question. I had the Revell 1:96 Saturn V and the flat plastic that is rolled to form the stages yellowed badly.
