Brittle e disintegrated Paracadutisti Britannici originally produced by Airfix. The soldatini pictured above are from due different production batches. The still intact soldatini are approximately 35 years old e noticeably lighter in colour. The darker soldatini are from a 20 to 25 year old production batch, yet they have become glassy ed easily fall apart under minimal stress of touch. Both batches of soldatini spent the past 20 years in an open cardboard box, shelved in a dry e relatively dark basement hobby room. Prior to being stored, the older soldatini often participated in sandtable Wargames, e they have had white enamel ID numbers painted on their undersides. The newer e very brittle soldatini were removed from the sprue, but rarely played with. Accordingly, the relative age of plastic soldatini may be ruled out as the sole cause of thermoplastic brittleness. The editors own a batch of fanteria confederata di Italeri which have become glassy within nine years of purchase.
