In lieu of the old Armor All, which was not really recommended for latex, Axtell has been including little sample packages of wipes with a new space age protectant for vinyl called "303 Aerospace Protectant"

Seems to be real good stuff, but It only comes as samples with the birds.

Anybody here know where I can buy a full bottle of this stuff? I can't seem to find it locally.

I popped "303 Aerospace Protectant" into AltaVista and got a whole page of results. It looks very easy to obtain.
Thanks for the tip on the product.

It seems to be much better for the vinyl than Armor All.

It would be cool if someday, Axtell came up with a new "space age" vinyl or something that didn't deteriorate over time.

Nothing is forever
Foam rots
Plastic Cracks
Wood dries and splinters
Latex Melts

but...we do have some more permanent solutions for skin but it's MUCH more costly than latex. Latex is also one of the most exciting materials because it can be cast into a mold retaining the sculptured look, it can flex and bend like skin, can be painted and glued to.... it's one of nature's amazing substances from the Hevea rubber tree.

One problem I have been having with my birds, Steve, is the feathers coming out. Not even with rough usage, just gentle use. I can see the tiny "pin" on the end of each one, and I have no idea how you guys got them to stick in in the first place, but I wish I could find a way to stick 'em back in!

Molting season? A dab of Hot glue or sewing will do the trick. Ax
