I bought today the Street Fighter model kit.I remember it as a kid being great fun.so I bought it today....I think back then the one I had was the Quicksilver.I don't remember red glass.I looked through it...I'm not happy with it.I can get around the back glass but the front I have no answers for.everything has to be fixed to made me happy.is there away of making or getting the glass from being red to clear.the car looks a big to big to.if I can't find glass that is clear or make it I guess it will sit on the shelf.any help would be great.Thanks.TIA.,Chris

That's the fun of trying to redo a car from your past. It's never as fun as you remember.

The only thing I can tell you is use a piece of clear acetate for the windshield but it might be hard to get it to curve correctly.

Chris, I don't know if this would be an option or not, but looking at pics of it on ebay, you might be able to get a clear windshield from the Revell 62 Impala. It looks like it has the same general shape as the Street Fighter's windshield, but the only other problem might be the difference in scales between the 1/24 scale of the Street Fighter and the 1/25 scale of the 62 Impala.

Maybe there is someone out here that just happens to have both kits and verify whether this option would work or not. B) :blink: :huh:

Or maybe clear windshield from Revell's '60 Impala? Does it fit? Or how about the "Bad Actor" windows? They are clear, if I remember correctly... The base kit is pretty much the same, I think. Maybe that should fit?

You are very lucky to find someone willing to part with the clear Bad Actor glass. I was looking to do this very trade last year and had no takers.

I'm also looking for clear glass. If anyone has some they are willing to part with.
