How do you maintain Clutch on Built Sets?
Hi. Ever since reading 'Lego-a Love Story', one fact has stuck in my mind and the question remains... The fact was that when the bricks are 'made-up' or interlocked, the plastic is under quite a bit of tension, therefore holding the pieces together. The question then is this: if i store models or minifigs 'made-up' for perhaps many years, will the plastic lose its flexibility and holding power? Just what is the long term viability of ABS?
