Default Trying Star Jets

So I decided, mainly because I was a US Airways guy at one time, to break down and buy the Star Jets A321. I know it's not diecast so forgive me if I offend those with an aversion to plastics... if I ever find it in metal, it will be swiftly bought!

I got it on eBay from a seller in China. It was affordable even with the shipping and taxes and I thought that it might go well in the US Airways zone of my case. It arrived today. True to it's reputation, there was yellowing on some parts but it's still a really nice looking model.

The really good news is that I'm learning to live with "not perfect," especially if it fits well in my collection and I can get it for a good price. That's even better news given my current "earning deficit." I'm thinking I may even try a little paint, at least on the gear. Any suggestions as to what sort of paint would be best for the job?

So here are some pics of my janky Airbus, in all her imperfect glory.

Starjets are excellent models but prone to "yellowing" on different parts.
I think Western models did a version of this. But I would think the Starjets is more accuarate

I have the same plane, mine is in the same condition as yours with the yellowing.
