What’s the best method to reattach vintage stickers that have dried out and fallen off? I don’t want my tie fighter to discolor over time as a result of stickers being reattached. Thanks for your thoughts.

They make archival glue sticks which cost a bit more, or even plain old Scotch glue sticks are acid-free.

I just use plain Elmer's School Glue. It's completely non-toxic, because it's made for kindergartners and is practically edible, and it dries clear.

Thanks guys for the advice! I think I'm going to go the glue stick route. :)

I use this on all my stickers its an Elmer's disappearing purple glue stick. Its looks a little weird when you apply it but it dries clear and holds really great. It also doesn't leak through the stickers and I have yet to have any bubble or warp on me.
Heres a link to what it looks like, I think you can find them cheaper if you search around a bit.
Hope this helps :)
