I screwed up a body

Oh well, it will look great on there someday. When I get around to ANOTHER hearse roof graft.... UUUGH! Bet nobody has one of those!

Yours is an unusual case in that I have never heard of that happening before! You mean you didn't add any solvents (glue, epoxy, etc...) to the area.......it was just resting against the plastic?? :shock:
The only thing I can think of is whatever chemicals are in the resin have reacted with the plastic and there may be no fix for the model.
If you have a digicam...........it would sure be nice to see this phenonemon! :shock:
P.S...........you did mean Heavenly Hearse did you not? :?

Like I said those spots are soft, I can move the soft plastic around like putty.
I have never heard of this either, let it be a warning to you all!
This also warrants some potentially interesting experimentation......

Although not as strange a problem as you experienced with the Hearse roof, my Salt Flat '34 body had three or four areas where solvent-based paints wouldn't dry completely. Instead of doing the metal-flaked show car I'd originally planned, I ended up painting it in flat acrylics instead. (You might note the pearl suspension and chunky flaked flathead block.)
