Ok guys. I can't think of a more knowledgeable bunch to pitch this question to... So here goes!
I've been digging out some of my older sets over the last few months (coming out of a "dark age" as you folks would put it) and I've got a couple of real classics that I'd love to restore to their full glory. Primarily the Renegade Runner (6268) and the Imperial Flagship (6271) which are in damn near mint condition. The only issue is that the sails have been pretty heavily creased thanks to shifting around in storage. I've tried leaving them under really heavy books for a good 10 days or so and it seems to have had very little effect (my guess is that the canvas is too heavy to be flatted out that way). I've also got a few Star Wars capes that could do with sorting out, as there is no way I'm buying a new double sided cape for Lando at £10 a shot! Especially when the one I've got is mint, besides the fact that it's been folded in half (I know, Lego sacrilege, don't shoot me).
I was thinking of placing the canvas between sheets of baking paper and ironing it, although I'm terrified that I might utterly destroy it. Anybody tried this before? Could anyone suggest an safe and effective method?
